Who Can Apply: A leadership experience that lasts. There’s no experience like the Bezos Scholars Program— a transformative, year-long, no-cost leadership development program that amplifies youth voice and action so young people with passion can start making a difference today.
Each year, 17 exceptional juniors, 12 from the U.S. and 5 from Africa, along with educators from each of their schools, are selected as Bezos Scholars. At the center of the program are Community Change Projects—fresh, achievable, and sustainable approaches to solving urgent problems, conceived and launched by Scholars with our support. Student scholars receive leadership training from noted experts along with free college advising and tutoring and $1,000 to fund their projects for up to three years.
