The Acumen Fund seeks to harness the power of social innovation to create solutions to the world's most pressing problems. The Fund administers regional programs for each of East Africa, India, and Pakistan. In each region, 20 fellows are selected for a leadership development program of five one-week seminars while remaining in their jobs. Acumen covers all program expenses related to travel and accommodations, but it does not offer scholarships, stipends, or other funding. Past fellows have included several in smallholder agriculture, renewable energy, waste management, fair trade, and other subject areas. The deadline to apply for each of these regional programs is 01 August 2016.
