Who can apply?

Young Global Pioneers connects young talents, who are ambitious and curious to find out how they can make their mark as the next generation of responsible global leaders. We believe that both leadership and talent come in many different shapes and sizes. To YGP, leadership and talent are also about striving to make a difference, and having the ambition to make it happen.

YGP strives to put together diverse groups of talents in terms of backgrounds and nationalities for each Learning Journey. Age-wise, you should be 19-25 years old in order to apply and participate on a 3-week Learning Journey – thus becoming part of the YGP Talent Network.


A number of companies are also offering scholarships for YGP Learning Journeys. These scholarships are normally only per invitation in selected regions. For these scholarships, applicants must apply following the specific scholarship procedure stated by the specific sponsor. In this case DO NOT use the below application form.

What happens after submitting your application?

Upon receiving and reviewing your application, Young Global Pioneers might ask for additional information, and selected candidates will be invited to a Skype conversation. The conversation will give you the opportunity to tell us more about yourself, ask questions and allow us to offer you additional information about the Learning Journey and our overall concept – so as to find out whether we are both a good match. Afterwards, we will let you know as soon as possible, if you have been selected to participate on the specific Learning Journey.

The below application form is only for applicants who can fully pay the 3.500 EUR for the Learning Journey themselves or raise the funds privately.
