Thiel Fellowship is a two-year program for young people who want to build new things. Fellowship isn’t an incubator or accelerator, so it’s complementary to any other program that fits your project. Thiel Fellows skip or stop out of college to receive a $100,000 grant and support from the Thiel Foundation’s network of founders, investors, and scientists.
Your $100,000 is a grant. So long as you’re working, you can use the funds however you want, the Fellowship does not take any ownership stake in your project.
