Powered by the Baker Institute and the Lehigh@NasdaqCenter, the Global Entrepreneurial Fellowship develops global entrepreneurial leaders by immersing students in project-based internships with early to mid-stage startups that are addressing global challenges. 


New for 2021, we are excited to announce a strategic partner: the Global Good Fund. Founded by Lehigh alumna Carrie Rich ‘07, the Global Good Fund is a social enterprise built by social entrepreneurs for social entrepreneurs. 


For 10 weeks this summer, a cohort of fellows have the opportunity to learn about the entrepreneurial process by working with U.S.-based startups committed to solving issues of global importance in the areas of health, education, the environment, economic mobility, and financial inclusion. The fellowship provides a real-world learning experience equipping students with mindsets, skills, and agency that they can carry with them into any career, role, or industry to create meaningful lives and lead positive change in the world.


Most startups operate with a remote team and find that this flexibility allows them to increase productivity and reduce costs. Fellows will have the opportunity to experience this future of work first hand. While our goal in 2021 is to return to an in-person, immersive experience where interns live together as a cohort in a major U.S. entrepreneurial hub, students will still work remotely for their startups. Current health and safety policies will guide the exact format and delivery of the program. We will update program participants as specific program format details are confirmed.
