About the Orange Mind International Fellowship

Orange Mind International Fellowship seeks to pair most promising Orange Academy students with specific mentor/teacher globally for Purposeful Practice Opportunities, PPO.

PPO prioritize students area of interest and talent while engaging with mentors. Purpose, because a specific skill will be the focus. Practice, because it will involve immense amounts of structured exercises on the part of the student. For instance, a student who seeks to grow a career in marketing quantitative analysis will be paired with an expert from anywhere in the world. Mentors give students a task to complete and guide them on how to do it. Students may propose their weak areas at the beginning of the fellowship, and these areas will be addressed during the fellowship. Mentors are encouraged to write a short recommendation for students’ resume or LinkedIn page at the end of the fellowship.


The Fellowship program is designed to equip selected students with cutting-edge skills they can use to impact their world and slingshot their career forward.

Note: The fellowship is guided and strictly timed.
There are no payments involved. Only open to IBX qualifying students.
