What is the Global Leaders Scholarship Fund? United-Nations-Conference_Salt-Lake-City-Utah_Utah-Council-for-Citizen-Diplomacy

As a legacy program of the 68th United Nations Civil Society Conference hosted by Salt Lake City in 2019, the vision of the Global Leaders Scholarship Fund (GLSF) is to engage Utah's youth in global conversations and to aid in their ability to act on the theme of the conference "Building Inclusive and Sustainable Global Cities and Communities."

This is done by providing scholarships to youth, where selected recipients will travel in cohorts to international events in the United States and around the world, representing Utah and addressing the global challenges we face. 

To meet the minimum qualifications to apply, youth must be between the ages of 18-32, be in college or in the process of attending college, and can establish they do not have the financial means to travel to events in the United States or around the world.

Qualities of a scholarship recipient demonstrate leadership potential, a connection to the broader community through volunteerism and service, a passion to improve one's community, and can establish a long-term vision of how receiving a scholarship from GLSF will have a positive impact on one's life. 

Due to COVID-19, events have not yet been identified.
