About this event

About the program

The International Strategy Forum (ISF) is an initiative of Schmidt Futures that bets early on the next generation of problem solvers with extraordinary potential in geopolitics, innovation, and public leadership.

Fellowship Experience

The benefits of becoming an ISF Fellow take many forms. The program is personalized and tailored to Fellows’ needs as they grow during their fellowship year and beyond. All ISF Fellows receive access to the following benefits:

  • Convening
    • Each February, Fellows from every region participate in a global convening, commencing the yearlong program. Fellows reconvene with their regional cohorts during the second half of their fellowship to discuss international affairs in smaller settings.
  • Network Events
    • Fellows are invited to virtual and in-person events hosted by ISF and partner organizations, including briefings with subject-matter experts, Fellow-led discussions, and leadership and upskilling courses.
  • Mentorship
    • Fellows have access to ISF Advisors and alumni of the program for mentorship and collaboration.


  • Nominated by an ISF Advisor or alum of the program
  • Between the ages of 25 and 35
  • Citizen, dual citizen, or resident of a country in Africa, Asia, North America, or Europe
  • Demonstrated expertise and/or strong interest in technology and/or global affairs


Deadline for applications is April 7, 2023, 11:59 Eastern time.
