Making an impact on the global and social challenges that we face today is difficult work.

Although we live longer, have a higher quality of life, and see more rapid social and technological change than ever before, these days the issues we face are still massive in scale.

They will require the focus of many areas of expertise, from the rapidly deteriorating state of our environment, to widening wealth inequality, racial injustice, the student and medical debt crises, and more.

We need bold, innovative new strategies and organizations that are effective in their approach and inspiring in their execution. We need movements that bring fresh perspectives and disruptive solutions to difficult questions.

Above all, we need leaders with vision, purpose, and talent—our best and brightest—to commit and be incentivized to take on our most pressing challenges.

We need our best and brightest to take on our most pressing challenges.

The High School Social Leaders Bi-Annual Scholarship will award $1,000 every 6 months to students who are focused on solving critical social issues either in their communities or at a global scale.

The scholarship is open to any high school students who plan on pursuing higher education.

To apply, students must be actively involved in organizations working to solve key social issues that we face today.

The scholarship is not restricted to a particular issue or type of organization. Students may be working locally or globally, and may be working independently, with a non-profit, or with a for-profit.

Preference will be given to students who are pursuing new or innovative approaches to a particular issue, with a focus on why they believe their approach makes most sense for the issue they’re working to solve.

Impact will also be factored in when reviewing student applications. This means both the potential impact of the student’s mission in their work, and the potential impact that winning the scholarship would have on their ability to realize their mission.

Essay Topic

How are you working to address an important social issue? Why are you passionate about this issue? How are you or the organization you’re part of innovative in its approach to the issue? Why do you believe your strategy is best suited to solve the problem?
