Last year over 100 participants from 30 countries developed skills, knowledge and experience in Paris on the theme of Impact Investment. Aurellia Attiope from Ghana returned after winning the Global Youth Forum in 2017 for her idea on Future Cities claimed “this is the greatest opportunity” and the 2018 winner Shinelle Bayard advised she nearly didn’t apply. She explained “If you have a dream you should follow it no matter how afraid you are or no matter how many obstacles are in your way”. If you don’t make it on the scholarship the program is still partially funded and heavily subsidized, so you only need to pay for your flights and 300€ for a participant or 200€ for presenter toward accommodation and the prize pot.
The only thing stopping you from applying is yourself.
