  • Applicants should be in the fields of tech, mental health, teaching, and sustainability.


The final stage of your application asks for a short (max. 300 words) but powerful personal statement that shows your passion for your subject, as well as why it matters to you and our world.

The scholarship judging panel consists of seven future-thinking leaders and activists in topics like:

  • Mental health
  • Tech and coding
  • Teaching
  • Climate studies


To apply, answer three simple questions telling:

  • which of the four focus subjects inspire you.
  • how you’re going to blaze a trail in it.
  • why it’s exciting right now.

Whether you’re serious about sustainability, hooked on coding, passionate about education, or want to lead in mental health, say why your subject area matters and how you’d make the difference.
