SLI Call for Applications Updated

The Call for Applications for Sylff Leadership Initiatives (SLI) has been updated with tips on how eligible fellows can improve their chances of winning an award.

SLI aims to support current and graduated fellows who are committed to taking the small steps that can make a big difference for the benefit of society. A maximum of US$10,000 is provided for two categories of activities with high social value: (1) a social action project or (2) a forum, conference, seminar, or workshop. Fellows may apply for SLI any time of the year.

To apply, each applicant must submit a concept paper summarizing the proposed project and the social issue it seeks to address in a concise and convincing manner. Because the concept paper is a crucial component of the selection process, we have added some tips on what the concept paper should contain in the “4. Selection Criteria” section of the Call for Applications.

We hope the additional information will be helpful when applicants are preparing their project proposals. If you are planning an initiative that can benefit society, be sure to check the updated Call for Applications at:

We look forward to receiving your application.
