Nominate tomorrow’s leaders to solve the world’s most important problems
Rise is a global talent program, created by Schmidt Futures and the Rhodes Trust, that finds extraordinary young people who need opportunity and supports them for life as they use their talents to serve others. Discovery, through its commitment to Reducing Inequality and Supporting Empowerment with a focus on providing basic human needs and education to improve social mobility, is partnering with them to build a global community of future leaders, connecting everyone who applies with a network of peers, learning resources, and additional opportunities around the world. Each year, 100 Global Winners, ages 15-17 will be selected and provided with individualized support throughout their lives as they commit their talents to building a better world. Winners will receive need-based financial support for university and internships, mentorship and career services, and access to funding to scale up their social impact throughout their careers.
