Rise for the World extends its warm regards, aiming to highlight an opportunity in collaboration with Schmidt Futures for charter high school students. The Rise program offers motivated students the chance to avail of need-based scholarships, closing the financial gap for college while providing an exclusive fellowship for learning and personal growth.

They have pasted some draft language below that outlines the program. Please feel free to pass along to any school leaders in your state. We would love to see as many charter school students as possible participate. 


Dear (insert name),

Do you know a promising 15-17-year-old?

Encourage them to apply to Rise:

The National Alliance for Public Charter Schools is proud to partner with Rise, an initiative of Schmidt Futures and the Rhodes Trust. I wanted to make sure you knew about this incredible opportunity.

Rise is a program that finds promising young people and provides opportunity as they work to serve others throughout their lifetime. The program seeks young people ages 15 to 17 and encourages a lifetime of service and learning by providing support that may include need-based scholarships, mentorship, networking, access to career development opportunities, and the potential for additional funding as Rise Global Winners work toward solving humanity’s most pressing problems.

Educators like you are uniquely positioned to help us find talented young people who may go undiscovered or unsupported otherwise—we’re emailing you to make sure that promising teens you know don’t miss out on this opportunity.

Talented young people from more than 170 countries have joined the Rise global community, with 200 Global Winners hailing from 69 countries. Hear from some recent winners!












All applicants must be 15-17 years old as of July 1, 2024. If you know a talented young person who meets the age criteria, send them our unique link to apply by January 25, 2023:
