Since 2018, the Ban Ki-moon Centre for Global Citizens has been sponsoring scholars to attend European Forum Alpbach in Tyrol, Austria. These scholars have been selected from the regions of the Middle East, Asia, and Africa.
To be selected for the scholarship, individuals must show that they are active global citizens in their communities. Whether founding their own NGOs or participating in leadership roles in already established youth and women’s empowerment organizations, selected scholars display outstanding dedication to the principles of global citizenship. During the Forum, the scholars have a busy schedule, including opportunities to engage face-to-face with the Centre’s Board and Co-chairs. Additionally, the scholars are each awarded with a certificate of achievement.
