What does a $1B investment in youth look like? Well, if you're 15-17 years-old or know someone who is, READ ON.
One year ago, We Are Family Foundation partnered with RISE (an initiative from Schmidt Futures and The Rhodes Trust), to scour the globe for 15-17 year-olds who are creating a better world.
Why? Well, with a $1B investment from Eric (former CEO of Google) and Wendy Schmidt, RISE created one of the largest lifetime scholarships for young social entrepreneurs that has ever existed. And in doing so, they received 50,000+ applications from over 170 countries in its first cycle in 2021!
Fast forward a year later, and 100 young people were chosen and announced as recipients of this scholarship. Each one of them will receive a LIFETIME of funding up to $500,000 - for education, seed money for a social venture, a residency, mentorship, ongoing support, and more.
Of the 100 chosen, 5 are a part of the We Are Family Foundation community. We are so proud of these young people and even more so, we are certain that more of the incredible humans in our WAFF global family are deserving of this resource in 2022!
Cycle 2 applications are open NOW until December 22, 2021!
