YFU Student Exchange Global Young Leaders Scholarships

YFU Student Exchange wants to encourage a new generation of young leaders and help equip them with the skills and experience to tackle the big issues of our times.

Each year we’re offering 20 ‘Global Young Leaders Scholarships’ to eligible high school students from Australia and New Zealand. The scholarships are valued at between $3,500 – $4,500 each.

These scholarships are awarded to Australian and New Zealand students who are demonstrating community or issue-based engagement that is making, or has the potential to make, a difference to the world around them.

We encourage applications from students of all backgrounds. We want to support and encourage students with leadership potential who will gain from the opportunity to learn about the world around them and better understand the future role they can play within it. We are looking for potential and motivation to change the world.

The next deadline for scholarship applications is at the end of April.
