Shell Scholarships to Attend The One Young World 2019 in London
  • Fully Funded
  • London

The One Young World Shell Scholarship Programme is an initiative by Shell Netherlands to empower ten ambitious, young people in realizing their initiatives for a better world.

In 2018, Shell developed the One Young World Shell Scholarship Programme to empower the development of diverse young leaders in the Netherlands to make a social impact in the areas of energy transition, education and entrepreneurship. The end goal is to work towards a social investment proposal, eligible for funding by Shell Netherlands. Secure the investment to make the project in mind a reality!

The Scholarship is back for 2019 and enables 10 ambitious young leaders to participate in the One Young World Summit 2019 in London.
