Schmidt Futures/Rhodes Trust Rise Challenge 2023 for Young People Worldwide. (Fully Funded)

Application Deadline: 25 January 2023.

In contrast to many traditional applications, Rise gives applicants many opportunities to demonstrate their potential through videos, projects, and group interviews. We provide candidates the choice of sending in text responses if they don’t have access to a video recording device. We provide a low-tech option through paper applications for those without access to technology. A organisation called Rise seeks out talented individuals who lack opportunities and supports them while they endeavour to help others.

After applicants complete the Rise Challenge, Rise selects up to 500 Finalists to advance to “Finalist Days,” where they demonstrate their motivations, problem-solving abilities, and teamwork skills in an innovative interview format. From the 500 Finalists, Rise selects up to 100 Global Winners to receive various benefits as they work to serve others.

An initiative of Schmidt Futures and the Rhodes Trust, Rise is the anchor program of a $1 billion commitment from Eric and Wendy Schmidt to find and support global talent.


  • Applicants for the 2023 cohort must be between the ages of 15 and 17 as of July 1, 2023, meaning they are born on or between July 2, 2005 and July 1, 2008.
  • .It does not matter what country they live in, background they come from, or academic experience they have. Whether they are interested in science, innovation, technology, art, policy, community organizing, or any other discipline—we want to hear from them.
