TED Fellows Program
The TED Fellows program is a global network of 300 innovators and trailblazers from a spectrum of disciplines. Every year, we look for 40 additional amazing change-makers to join the pack. Plug into this vibrant community by applying to be a Fellow, sponsoring the program or exploring their stories of growth and impact.
The TED Fellows Program is thrilled to present our new class! The TEDGlobal 2014 class includes an opera singer, a geneticist studying pests that threaten the Amazon river, an artist whose immersive works float on water, a healthcare innovator, and so much more! They will join 15 other global world-changers who will attend and speak at TEDGlobal 2014 in Rio de Janeiro.

TED Senior Fellow Laurel Braitman’s recently launched book -- Animal Madness: How Anxious Dogs, Compulsive Parrots, and Elephants in Recovery Help Us Understand Ourselves -- explores how nonhuman animals struggle with varieties of mental illness strikingly similar to our own.
