Global Young Leaders strives to identify the most impactful young leaders from every country in the world. Many Global Young Leaders delegates are top performing professionals, sent to attend the Summit by forward thinking managers who see the need for talent development. Many are paving the way politically in their countries, sent to attend the Summit by governments who see the value in empowering young people. Many are changing the world starting at the grassroots, sent to attend the Summit by organisations who want to support young people making waves. 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.

Since I won a scholarship to the Global Young Leaders Summit, my life has changed. Not only did this opportunity motivate me to continue working on building peace in my country, I also grew as a leader and now have friends all around the world.

Yes! You may apply for more than one scholarship but you can only be selected to win one scholarship.

Yes you can. Our scholarship places are open to all, though please note that priority will be given to first-time Summit attendees (not Global Young Leaders Ambassadors). This is because Global Young Leaders is committed to ensuring that the opportunity to attend the Summit is available to as many people as possible, regardless of their ability to pay.

We will send individual emails to all applicants - regardless of whether they have been shortlisted or not - informing them of the outcome. We are not able to respond to individual emails enquiring about the status of individual scholarship applications.

Global Young Leaders receives an overwhelming number of applications for each scholarship programme so we are afraid that it is simply not possible to give individual feedback to each applicant

We're sorry to hear that you were not selected for a scholarship. Please do not be discouraged; we regularly add new scholarships to our scholarships page so please apply for any other scholarships you would like to be considered for. If you are ultimately not selected for a scholarship, you could consider attending the Summit independently - by paying your own Independent Delegate Fee
