The Ban Ki–moon Global Citizen Scholarship Program aims to support and empower young African global citizens who have a passion for taking action to achieve the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). These ambitious goals are focused on improving the lives of all people around the world by 2030. The scholarship program provides an opportunity for young individuals to learn, lead, and contribute towards making these goals a reality.
The Ban Ki–moon Centre for Global Citizens is pleased to announce the opening of the 6th round of its Global Citizen Scholarship Program, which has achieved great success in previous cycles.
