Upcoming Fellowships


The Fellowship that started it all! Launched in 2014, Halcyon’s Residential Fellowship continues to bring together impact-driven founders from across the globe to Halcyon’s facilities in Washington, DC. Fellows receive free living and workspace, mentorship and leadership coaching, robust support from business consultants, and a living stipend to develop their venture.


Halcyon is excited to launch its second fully in-region deployment for the MENA region in support of the US Department of State and in partnership with Amazon Web Services (AWS). This fellowship brings together inspiring founders from the Middle East and North Africa for cross-border collaboration and network and venture development.

The inaugural Halcyon MENA Intensive Cohort featured 27 social entrepreneurs from eight countries in the region, creating powerful networks and skills to grow their impactful ventures. Participated in Halcyon’s first regional residency in Amman, Jordan. We look forward to returning to the region with the second team in March 2023.

With support from the U.S. Department of State and in collaboration with Amazon Web Services (AWS), this new cohort will receive two virtual meetings to bond as a group and receive programming, and a one week in-person residency capped off with a showcase event in the Middle East/North Africa region.


Halcyon’s Opportunity Intensive supports entrepreneurs based in or primarily serving historically under-resourced communities in the Washington, DC region to accelerate innovation and inclusive economic growth. Fellows from across DC, Maryland, and Virginia meet for programming one day per month, with two, week-long intensive residencies and a culminating showcase event in July 2023.


Halcyon is excited to run the first cohort of our Future Builders Fellowship. This fellowship will bring together women and non-binary entrepreneurs from across the United States who identify as Black/African-American, Hispanic/Latinx, Afro-Latina, and are solving 21st century challenges through business.

What are the benefits of Halcyon fellowships?

Halcyon supports the development of fellows’ ventures and the fellows themselves as entrepreneurs and leaders.

Halcyon provides fellows: space, community, and access. The physical and mental space to focus on their venture and grow as an entrepreneur and a leader. Connection to a community of entrepreneurs and world-class mentors. Access to a thriving innovation ecosystem, vital pro-bono resources, skill development trainings, peer consultations, and a network of technical experts and investors.
