Be Unreasonable!

The Unreasonable Institute's name comes from a quote by George Bernard Shaw:

"The reasonable man adapts himself to the world; the unreasonable one persists in trying to adapt the world to himself. Therefore, all progress depends on the unreasonable man [and woman]."

This group of 4 young men, believe in "unreasonable people" - "those who are just crazy enough to ignore the skeptics, who remain undeterred by persistent failure, and who, above all, are convinced they can change the world." (from their website)

This "unreasonable" quality is one of the things that they look for when selecting the top 25 fellows. Fellowship applications are currently being accepted- APPLY!
