Founded in 1991, the Melton Foundation is a network of partner universities and over 450 competitively selected Fellows from Chile, China, Germany, India, and the USA. Our portfolio of programs and activities is centered on promoting global citizenship as a way for people and institutions to address today's global challenges.

The core activities of the Foundation are made possible through an endowment provided by Bill Melton. A successful entrepreneur and visionary investor for over 30 years, Bill Melton was founder of VeriFone Inc. and an early investor in America Online, PayPal, Coffee Day, OnMobile and other transformational companies in India, China and the US.

Mission Statement:

“The Melton Foundation actively promotes global citizenship as a way for individuals and organizations to work together across boundaries of place and identity to address global challenges.”

The Melton Foundation and its Fellows are guided by a set of core values that define who we aspire to be and how we project ourselves in the world:

Global Citizenship -  We have a duty to mobilize the Foundation and its network to promote the practice of global citizenship through local and global action.

Respect -  We acknowledge and appreciate cultural differences, and actively nurture in ourselves and in others the ability to understand the world from multiple perspectives.

Curiosity -  Our passion for learning about different fields, issues, and ideas empowers Fellows to be interdisciplinary thinkers and doers.

Trust, Responsibility, and Reciprocity - We practice open communication and personal accountability among each other as the basis of a global network of support, learning experiences, and lifelong personal and professional relationships.
