O'Shaughnessy Fellowships 2024

One year and $100,000 to work on anything you want.

The O’Shaughnessy Fellowship is a one-year program for ambitious people who want to build something great. Fellows receive $100,000 to work on any project they choose with support from OSV's network of founders, investors, and experts.

Because of the internet, for the first time in history, we were able to connect and collaborate with anyone, anywhere across the globe. In the 2020s, we have only just begun to witness the impact of this monumental change.

It doesn’t matter who you are, where you live, your age, gender or sexual orientation. If you’re skilled, you can contribute to advancing humanity in any field you choose. It can be Art, science, technology, history, philosophy and more.

Founded by Jim O’Shaughnessy in 2023, the O’Shaughnessy Fellowship aims to attract the most talented people on the planet and provide a quantum leap to ambitious creators and builders on their journey.
