4.0 Fellowship Q & A Webinar #1 - Shared screen with speaker view
I need permission
Hi, I have a question. My organization has received about $50k in funding through accelerators, incubators and some prizes / fellowships. Noticing what it says on the slide, is it definite that we should not apply?
Rachel Van Parys
Hi Mahmoud! Your organization might be a bit further along than where our Fellowships are most helpful. If you're still interested and can make a case for why you're still a good fit, you can look into applying for the Tiny Fellowship
Thank you for answering my questions. We have been recommended to apply by a few friends who were fellows. We see great value in your team’s experience and connections in the Education market. Especially because we have not hit Product Market Fit yet. We have done workshops / programs across NYC — but we’re still trying to figure out the business model, better understanding of our stakeholders (young people, educators, corporations) and building the best programs. Based on that, do you think that is a good case? :)
how many essential fellows are you selecting?
About how many people apply for the Tiny Fellowship, and about how many get it?
Are you only interested in early childhood and new school applications?
When I'm pitching an idea, what information is key?
If you do the essentials fellowship do you have to wait until the next year to apply for Tiny? Or is there a way to move into the other fellowship that same year?
Is there monetary support with the Tiny Fellowship, in addition to the professional development? If so, about how much is that?
Great - thank you for answering my question Ashley! Appreciate you for all the context & examples. Makes sense! (Thumbs up)
Do fellows struggle with maintaining their full time 8-5pm jobs? especially since schools have the same hours?
Can the co-hosts share a bit of how they came to be at 4.0?

What is the time frame for the Tiny Fellow project, beginning to end?
Since I’m still solo on this project, would you be able to help me identify some collaborators?
Ok, thanks. And you said my name spot on
I can’t hear
That was helpful, thanks for answering that!
Is it recommended to have a team when we apply or is it ok if we are still working on this at the solo stage?
Do you have to be a nonprofit to qualify?
Thank you both very much.
Thanks for sharing that perspective!
Woot for public health!
Great responses - thanks for sharing so much!
is there an opportunity to have someone review your application, or parts of it prior to submission?
OK thank you!!
What would you say are some distinguishing features between those applications that get the Tiny Fellowship and those that don't?
Same question as from Linda above about the Essentials Fellowship
what do you want to see in our bio?
Thanks! I'll definitely be reaching out
