Rise Challenge for Outstanding Youth – Jan 17

Posted by Schmidt Futures on December 12, 2023

Rise Challenge invites applications from outstanding youth

An initiative of Schmidt Futures and the Rhodes Trust, the Rise Challenge is a program that finds promising young people and provides opportunities for life as they work to serve others. The program starts at ages 15 to 17 and offers many benefits, including need-based scholarships, mentorship, networking, access to career development opportunities, and the potential for additional funding.

Rise Global Winners hail worldwide and demonstrate brilliance in various disciplines. Some may excel in STEM fields, others may show outstanding artistic ability, and others may have a gift for community service and organizing. All Rise Global Winners should demonstrate the following traits: brilliance, perseverance, integrity, empathy, and calling.

Unlike many traditional applications, Rise uses videos, projects, and group interviews so applicants have multiple opportunities to showcase their potential.

Applicants for the 2024 cohort must be between the ages of 15 and 17 as of July 1, 2024, meaning they were born on or between July 2, 2006, and July 1, 2009.

For complete program guidelines and application instructions, see the Rise website.

Deadline: January 17, 2024
