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

A legacy of the 68th United Nations Civil Society Conference hosted by Salt Lake City in 2019, the Global Leaders Scholarship Fund (GLSF) empowers Utah's young people to participate in critical global conversations with peers from around the world.

Recipients of the Global Leaders Scholarship will travel in cohorts to international events in the United States and around the world, representing Utah and addressing the global challenges we face.

Applicants must be between the ages of 18-32, attend a college or university in Utah (or have been accepted to one for an upcoming semester - online students in Utah are also accepted), and establish financial need. In addition to the application, qualified applicants may be invited to participate in an interview with the GLSF Committee.

Important qualities of a scholarship recipient are leadership potential, a connection to the broader community through volunteerism and service, and a passion for improving one's community. The selection committee also looks for applicants who can establish a long-term vision of how receiving a scholarship from GLSF will have a positive impact on one's life.

Why the Global Leaders Scholarship Fund? 

The global reach of the scholarship fund makes it a unique international affairs opportunity for youth in Utah. The Global Leaders Scholarship Fund's vision is to deepen Utah’s roots in the global community by empowering young people. Today’s youth are our best hope for creating an equitable, inclusive, just, and sustainable society for all to live.

UCCD and the Global Leaders Scholarship Fund Committee take the need to live and work sustainability seriously. The Global Leaders Scholarship Fund is carbon net-neutral, offsetting 100% of emissions related to scholarship activity.

Due to uncertainty regarding COVID19, events have not yet been identified.
