Opportunity Overview

One Young World

One Young World strives to identify the most impactful young leaders from every country in the world. Scholarships provide the opportunity for exceptional young people to attend on the merit of their proven leadership and ability to create change in their home country.

Many of our scholars are changing the world starting at the grassroots, sent to attend the Summit by organisations who want to support young people making waves. Some are top performing professionals, sent by forward thinking managers who see the need for talent development. While others are paving the way politically in their countries, and are sent to the Summit by governments who see the value in empowering young people.

We only develop and support young leaders who can demonstrate a proactive commitment to build a positive impact on their communities. But we believe the world needs leaders from every background. We are not just inclusive, we proactively welcome diversity – across every country and every sector. This means we look for people who are doing the best they can within their individual circumstances, to improve the lives of others, no matter their field of interest or expertise.

Our scholarship programme means that the best and brightest young leaders from around the world are able to attend our Summit entirely free, from beginning to end including travel, catering and accomodation, regardless of their financial circumstances.
