Rise is a program that finds brilliant people who need opportunity and supports them for life as they work to serve others. The program starts at ages 15–17 and offers Global Winners access to benefits that last a lifetime including need-based scholarships, a fully-funded residential experience, mentorship, career development opportunities, funding, and more.
Traditional application processes often miss traits like brilliance, perseverance, integrity, empathy, and calling to serve others. That’s why Rise launched an innovative program that uses videos, projects, and group interviews, allowing youth to showcase their potential in different ways.
Rise is truly a global initiative! It does not matter what country you live in, background you come from, or academic experience you have. Whether you are interested in science, innovation, technology, art, policy, community organizing, or any other discipline—Rise wants to hear from everyone!
Talented young people from more than 170 countries have joined the Rise global community, with 200 Global Winners hailing from 69 countries. Meet the Global Winners here!
All applicants must be 15-17 years old as of July 1, 2023. If you know a talented young person who meets the age criteria, send them our unique link to apply by January 25, 2023:
