This year, The Brilliant Club has partnered with Schmidt Futures to promote the Rise Global Challenge.
Rise finds promising young people aged 15-17 and brings them together to work toward solving humanity’s most pressing problems. As well as building a strong global community of changemakers, Rise provides learning and career support, including scholarships, mentorship, access to career development opportunities, and the potential for scholarships and additional funding.
If you are (or know!) a talented young person born between 2nd July 2006-1st July 2009 (Years 10, 11 or 12), apply via our unique link by 17th January 2024: https://www.risefortheworld.org/brilliant-club.
If you want to learn more, The Brilliant Club recently hosted a webinar where we heard from Rise staff and a previous Rise Global Winner about their experience. You can access the webinar here.
The Turing Summer Experience is a series of funded Data Science and Artificial Intelligence weeks for Year 12 students.
