Call for Applications: ICC Fellowship


Applications for this year’s ICC Fellowship are now closed!


Powered by a passionate and committed national network, the Institute for Canadian Citizenship (ICC) delivers programs and special projects that inspire inclusion, create opportunities to connect, and encourage active citizenship. 

The ICC Fellowship provides a special opportunity for young leaders from around the world to make a change in their own community through the creation and implementation of projects on inclusion and citizenship. Launched in 2016 as the 6 Degrees Junior Fellowship, we have welcomed 22 fellows from 11 different countries into the program. These outstanding young people were chosen based on their dedication to fostering inclusion and building citizenship in their respective communities. (Read about our past cohorts of junior fellows here.)

The newly renamed ICC Fellowship will run from September 2018 to May 2019. Select ICC Fellows will be invited to attend 6 Degrees Toronto in September 2019, based on their performance during the fellowship period. 

2018 Theme: Technology and Citizenship 

Technology is radically transforming how we understand citizenship and belonging. Technology has changed how we interact, communicate, and work with each other. It has changed how communities function, and even the notion of community itself. 

This year’s fellowship will centre on the intersection of technology and citizenship. What is the impact of technology on the ideas and practices surrounding citizenship and belonging? How has technology changed what it means to be a citizen? Has technology been a force for, or against, active citizenship? Are there ways we can better employ and harness technology to promote more inclusive societies?

ICC Fellows will create and implement projects to help the ICC to shed insight on these questions, and advance the future of technology and citizenship. 


Each ICC Fellow will be required to:
