Schmidt Futures/Rhodes Trust Rise Challenge 2023 for young people worldwide. (Fully Funded)
Application Deadline: 25 January 2023. bit.ly/3tEQ57i
Each year, Rise invites 15-17 year olds from around the world to participate in the Rise Challenge. Unlike many traditional applications, Rise uses videos, projects, and group interviews so applicants have multiple opportunities to showcase their potential. For applicants without access to a video recording device, we offer the option of submitting text responses. For applicants without access to technology, we offer an alternative low-tech pathway through paper applications. Rise is a program that finds brilliant people who need opportunity and supports them as they work to serve others.
After applicants complete the Rise Challenge, Rise selects up to 500 Finalists to advance to “Finalist Days,” where they demonstrate their motivations, problem-solving abilities, and teamwork skills in an innovative interview format. From the 500 Finalists, Rise selects up to 100 Global Winners to receive various benefits as they work to serve others.
Applicants for the 2023 cohort must be between the ages of 15 and 17 as of July 1, 2023, meaning they are born on or between July 2, 2005 and July 1, 2008.
It does not matter what country they live in, background they come from, or academic experience they have. Whether they are interested in science, innovation, technology, art, policy, community organizing, or any other discipline—we want to hear from them.
