The Scholarship

Your chance to become a part of the Young Global Changers community!


In 2019 3.500 people from 155 different countries applied for the Young Global Changers scholarship program. We would like to thank you for this overwhelming interest! We are currently preparing the application cycle for the 2020 program and will update you once we accept new applications.


Who are we looking for?


The Young Global Changers program is looking for young people with innovative ideas on how to make this world a better place. We are looking for young researchers and academics who are working on new approaches to global challenges as well as for practitioners, such as young social entrepreneurs and civil society organizers who are actively involved in bringing about change on the ground. During the YGC program we are aiming at recoupling solid academic research from across all disciplines with hands-on experience from young changemakers.


Become Part of a Global Network!


Successful applicants will become a part of the Young Global Changers community. While in Berlin, they will connect with experts and policy leaders from think tanks and from across politics, business and civil society to share their ideas and know-how. During workshops and lectures, the participants work with one-of-a-kind individuals from academia and the economic sector, as well as world-renowned thought leaders. The participants will attend talks and discussions at the summit and will engage with the content and ideas discussed.


The scholarship will enable successful applicants to participate in the Global Solutions Summit and the Global Solutions Summer School. The next round of applications will start in the fall of 2019. The summer school will take place in April 2020 in Berlin. More details on the scholarship and eligibility criteria will follow shortly.
