Who are our Fellows?
D&F Academy Fellows, our students, are young individuals aged 18 to 28 who have a dream, that they want to work on to make a change in their society. They come together from around the world to participate in a D&F Academy project in the fields of global issues, arts and culture, or sports.
Fellows are individuals who are eager, curious and inspired to learn under the guidance of a leading personality – the project Friend. Every Fellow has a passion, a dream or an idea for a (social) business or non-profit venture that they want to implement and for which they seek inspiration, guidance, skills and mentoring at the D&F Academy.
Our Fellows come from a variety of different backgrounds with regards to their home country and culture, as well as educational backgrounds and social strata. They are united by their curiosity and passion to create a positive social impact in their own communities.
