2024 Next Generation Foresight Practitioners (NGFP) Fellowship


The fellowship is an opportunity for young professionals to have more support as they begin to explore the futures and foresight field. We know that being a futurist can be a lonely place, and a sort of practice that particularly young people do on the side of their daily jobs, and usually for free. 

The fellowship is a way to provide the next generation of futures and foresight enthusiasts with a platform to connect with like-minded people from around the world, receive mentorship and build foresight capability, participate in regional and sector-specific hubs, and access funding to develop their foresight projects.

 Fellows also have the opportunity to participate in highly relevant events in the futures and foresight field, and to be connected with today’s decision-makers at the highest levels.

Eligibility Requirement

Anyone between 18 and 35 years old, as well as those who are older, but have less than five years of experience using foresight.

They are particularly enthusiastic about applications from those living in the Global South, and those working on the world’s most complex issues, or Foresight Transformation Missions, as we refer to them.

Every year, they make sure we have at least two fellows under 25 years old. In 2024, we will reserve one spot within our cohort to a fellow from the Balkans.

This is our way to honor the memory of a great SAIF’s colleague, Sophie Middlemiss, who passed away in 2021 and was passionate about the region.

For the first time in 2024, we’re reserving space in the fellowship for emerging practitioners from the Middle East & North Africa region, in partnership with Dubai Future Foundation.


At the beginning of the journey, each fellow receives a USD 1,000 prize to Develop
