About the Scholarship
The Z Zurich Foundation empowers vulnerable people to better protect themselves from risk, and to adapt and thrive in a rapidly changing world. We aspire for a more equal world where everyone has independence, choice and power over their own futures.
Improving mental wellbeing, and enabling social equity are two central pillars of the Z Zurich Foundation, and these aren’t causes we picked at random. We believe that the key to creating a better future is connection - fostering relationships between those in the know and those most in need, and tackling society’s challenges from the ground up. This is why we are committed to supporting impactful leaders to participate in the annual One Young World Summit, the world’s most international community of young leaders.
The Z Zurich Foundation Scholarship 2023 will allow 16 young leaders working on prevention focused mental wellbeing projects, or projects enabling social equity through education, employability or entrepreneurship solutions, to participate in the One Young World Summit 2023 which takes place in Belfast, United Kingdom from 2 – 5 October.
If you are a young leader working to champion mental wellbeing or create a more equal society, this scholarship could be for you.
