Leading Africa Scholarship 2022

About the Leading Africa Scholarship:


The Leading Africa Scholarship is an initiative designed to ensure that outstanding young people from Africa are represented at the One Young World Summit 2022 in Tokyo.

Africa is host to the largest population of young people in the world, with over 60% of its population under the age of 25. With 72% of its labour force in “vulnerable” employment and several countries experiencing challenges of governance and violent extremism, the Fourth Industrial Revolution could provide a lifeline to this young, eager population. Given their sheer numbers, they have the ability to transform their regions, whether it be in governance, energy, infrastructure, medicine and beyond.

In the midst of these challenges and opportunities, it is young leaders who are devising meaningful strategies to build a more sustainable region. Are you one of those leaders? If so, One Young World is looking to bring you to the next annual Summit.

What does the Leading Africa sponsorship pay for?

  • Access to the One Young World Summit 2022 in Tokyo, Japan.
  • Hotel accommodation between 15 and 19 May 2022.
  • Catering which includes breakfast, lunch and dinner.
  • Transport between the Summit accommodation and the Summit venue.
  • Summit handouts and support materials.
  • The cost of travel to and from Tokyo. Your flight to and from Tokyo must depart from and return to one and the same international airport.

Please note that if you are ultimately selected for a Scholarship and require a visa to enter Japan to attend the One Young World Summit 2022, you will be required to pay the visa fee yourself. The visa costs 22 GBP plus the applicable service charge of your local visa application centre. The costs of the visa and the applicable service charge as well as any further costs associated with the visa application (including travel to and from the visa application centre) fall on you as the participant.

Being a ‘Leading Scholar’ has allowed me to be a more comprehensive and globalised leader. I could not have otherwise networked and formed relationships with the people who are now in my network.
