1/30 Gen-I NOW: Bezos Scholars Program

Each spring, 17 exceptional high school juniors and a supportive educator from their school are selected as Bezos Scholars from around the U.S. and from the African Leadership Academy. After spending a week immersed in learning at the Aspen Ideas Festival, they return home to inspire action by developing a community change project that combines their passion with meeting a defined community need. The program kicks off with an all-expenses paid trip to the Aspen Ideas Festival, June 22-28, 2019. With ongoing support and $1,000 in funding, student and educator teams launch local community change projects that align their unique passion with a community need. Applications are due February 8, 2019.
