Call for Applications: Global Scholar:  COVID-19 Edition

Application Period: July 21—August 3, 2020

We are very happy to partner with AMP Global Youth on the AMP Global Scholar program.

Global Scholar: COVID-19 Edition offers a special opportunity for youth from across the United States and Morocco to come together to explore their shared experiences and connections, understand their differences, and work together to propose bold youth-led interventions and alternatives.

The program is funded by the Stevens Initiative.

Key Program Elements

Amplifying Youth Solutions        

We will explore what it means to be a global citizen and the unique power of youth to redefine our future and make change happen.

Exploring COVID

COVID-19 isn’t just a public health challenge. It has widened existing challenges across all sectors, from food security to immigration. Global Scholars will examine COVID-19 as a systemic challenge, which requires dynamic action.

Building Skills

Global Scholars build skills to initiate projects in their communities addressing the impacts of COVID-19 and support each other across borders too. The world cannot wait for your action!
