Leading Scholarships

Since 2019, One Young World has worked to guarantee young people from all 196 countries in the world are represented at One Young World Summits, regardless of their ability to pay.

To ensure this, fully-funded scholarship places are awarded to outstanding young leaders with a range of backgrounds, skill sets and nationalities.

In 2019, One Young World launched the flagship 'Leading Scholarships' which for the first time ever were open to every country in the world.

I returned back with a fresh perspective and now have lots of ideas for new initiatives. I was inspired by stories of young leaders who excelled in their fields.
