Opportunity Description

About the program

The Rise Challenge 2023 is now accepting applications. Rise is a program that seeks out brilliant individuals in need of opportunity and supports them as they work to serve others. Rise invites youth from all over the world to participate in the Rise Challenge each year. Unlike many traditional applications, Rise makes use of videos, projects, and group interviews to provide applicants with multiple opportunities to demonstrate their abilities.

The Rise Challenge encourages applicants to create an individual project that showcases their talents and benefits their communities, as well as peer review other applicants’ projects. Rise selects up to 500 Finalists after applicants complete the Rise Challenge to advance to “Finalist Days,” where they demonstrate their motivations, problem-solving abilities, and teamwork skills in an innovative interview format.

Rise chooses up to 100 Global Winners from among the 500 Finalists to receive various benefits while working to serve others.
