Watson applications are open for the spring and fall social innovation programs! We are searching for the grittiest young social innovators out there for the Semester Incubator and Bachelor’s Degree programs. Strong applicants have a powerful idea for social, economic or environmental change, a strong track record in the social impact space and true grit.
Watson is a new university model tailored for next generation innovators, leaders, and social entrepreneurs. We protect the courage of the next generation so they can pioneer their education, trailblaze lives as innovators, and contribute to solving the toughest challenges facing the world.
Each Watson semester is an intensive fifteen week program in which scholars receive weekly mentorship and coaching sessions, free international legal support (through a partnership with Thomson Reuters), training in the hard skills and frameworks to take their ideas to the next level, and a community of peers that will last far beyond Watson. We aim to be the Olympic training ground for next generation changemakers and you can expect the experience to be both challenging and fun.
The Early Decision deadline for the Spring is October 10th, and Final Deadline is November 1. Interested students can find out more and apply at watson.lynn.edu.
