Eureka Fellowship for Youth Changemakers in Canada to attend the 2024 One Young World Summit (Fully Funded)

Application Deadline: 23 April 2024

 The Eureka Fellowship is inviting youth in Canada between the ages of 18 and 30 to apply to be a part of the newly launched Eureka Fellowship for Youth Changemakers in Canada (Eureka Fellowship) and be given the opportunity to attend the One Young World Summit Montréal, 2024 (18 – 21 September) – the world’s largest and most impactful youth leadership event focused on tackling some of the biggest challenges facing humanity.

The Eureka Fellowship will bring together thirteen incredible youth changemakers from across Canada who are actively working to make a positive impact in one of three areas: (1) access to healthcare and health equity, (2) environmental protection and climate action, or (3) championing diversity, equity, and inclusion (including gender equality). 

In its inaugural year, the Eureka Fellowship will provide thirteen (13) inspiring youth Canadian changemakers the opportunity to attend the One Young World Summit Montréal, 2024, taking place from 18 – 21 September. At the Summit, young leaders will participate in learning and development workshops and network with global youth changemakers. The annual One Young World Summit brings together young leaders representing 190+ countries and 250+ organizations to confront the biggest challenges facing humanity. Delegates will attend four life-changing days of networking and knowledge-sharing. Together, participating youth leaders raise the bar for what social impact we can make both individually and as a global community.

The fellowship will identify and connect a diverse team of youth sustainability leaders from across Canada who have demonstrated their commitment to making a positive impact on people, society, or the planet. Potential fellows should have a passion for local and global issues, such as increasing access to healthcare and health equity, supporting environmental protection and climate action, or championing diversity, equity, and inclusion. They should also demonstrate a willingness to engage, collaborate, and share knowledge with other Eureka Fellowship recipients. Selected fellows will receive full funding to participate in the Summit as members of the Eureka Fellowship delegation, have opportunities to participate in exclusive programming in the lead up to, during, and following the Summit, and receive expert mentorship to help amplify and accelerate their sustainability initiatives.
