“The diverse set of thoughtful and socially-committed ideas in our first class of fellows was nothing short of astounding,” said Halcyon Program Manager Ryan Ross, in a release. “We are excited to see what sort of global challenges applicants propose to tackle as part of our second class of fellows.”

All social entrepreneurs are encourage to apply for the program. For those interested, applications can be submitted until September 18, 2014. According to Successful applicants that make it into the second class will joint the likes of Diana Sierra from Be Girl, which is attempting to close the gap between the lack of sanitary feminine products for girls in the developing world and their likelihood of finishing school.

Additionally, fellows in the program are provided with rent-free housing and office-space for 14 months, on top of food and living stipends, coaching, mentorship, connections to a network of potential funders, and support in the form of strategy, legal, and PR.
