Brand New Scholarship for #OYW2019 launched with The Queen’s Commonwealth Trust

One Young World, in collaboration with The Queen's Commonwealth Trust, has launched an exciting new scholarship opportunity to attend the OYW Summit in London later this year

The Commonwealth connects 53 countries, spanning across Africa, Asia, Europe, the Americas and the Pacific. Member states range from global, economic powerhouses to small, developing island nations, and are cumulatively home to over 2.4 billion people. Of this large and diverse population, approximately 60% are under the age of 30. This motivated and youthful demographic are tackling substantial issues in their communities and further afield. They are unwilling to wait until tomorrow to become the world’s leaders, and are having a huge, positive impact in the global community.

Spearheaded by its President, Prince Harry, the Queen's Commonwealth Trust is an organisation which provides a platform for these young change-makers. It finds and funds their bright ideas to solve local challenges in education, health, the environment and sport. The organisation harnesses the leadership, energy and optimism of young people to tackle local challenges, a vision which closely aligns with that of One Young World.

Together, the organisations have established an exciting new scholarship opportunity to identify the most impressive leaders between the ages of 18 and 30 from Commonwealth countries. This sponsorship offers fully-funded scholarship places to attend the One Young World Summit 2019. For a taste of what the event holds in store, see highlights from last year’s Summit in The Hague:

One Young World’s flagship event brings together nearly 2000 of the most talented young leaders from over 190 countries. Whilst in attendance, they make lasting connections with peers from almost every industry, sector and state. Once a delegate has attended, they connect with a growing community of over 10,000 engaged and impactful leaders.

The launch of the Queen’s Commonwealth Trust Scholarship will coincide with the Summit returning to its birthplace, London, in celebration of the event’s tenth anniversary. To find out more about the new programme, click below.
