The world’s most important problems will be solved by tomorrow’s leaders.
Yet too often, the most talented people never realize their full potential for global impact.
Rise is on a mission to change that.
If you are between the ages of 15 and 17, from any country, with any background, you can apply to be part of the first-ever Rise cohort.
Whether you’re interested in science, art, community organizing, or any other topic, we want to hear from you.
Everyone who applies joins the Rise global community. You’ll have access to a network of peers, learning resources, and additional opportunities from Rise partners around the world.
During the application process, you will create an individual project and build professional and personal skills.
Each year, 100 Rise Global Winners will receive a lifetime of individualized support as they use their talents to build a better world.
Winners will receive need-based financial support for university and internships, gain access to mentorship and career services, and be able to compete for funding to scale up their social impact.
We know that at 15 years old, not everyone knows exactly how they will make a difference in their lifetime.
But whenever they’re ready to use their talents for good, we want to be there every step of the way.
Ultimately, we hope Rise will help exceptional people better serve others for the next century
