About the Scholarship

At Zurich Insurance, we aspire to become one of the most sustainable companies in the world. We strive to create positive and sustainable change as an insurer, an investor and as an employer. Through our Z Zurich Foundation, we also look to empower vulnerable people within our communities to better protect themselves from risk, and to adapt and thrive in a rapidly changing environment. NEXT is a grassroots movement within Zurich Insurance that advocates for the voices of the next generation of leaders to be heard by promoting intergenerational dialogue, partnering with other corporations and finding ways to do good while doing well. NEXT is made up of intrapreneurs from across the Zurich Group, who attend the One Young World Summit alongside external scholars. We focus on innovating in three areas: Mitigating the impacts of climate change, tackling the world's increasing physical and mental health challenges, and striving to increase both social and financial inclusion. Our aim is to transform the lives of 1m people by 2024, and positively impact the lives of 10m more. As a longstanding partner of Global Young Leaders, we’re proud to support the Zurich Global Young Leaders Scholarship 2021 which will enable 12 outstanding young leaders to attend the Global Young Leaders Summit in Munich, Germany on 11 – 14 October 2021.This is your chance to become one of these scholars!
