The Frederick Douglas Global Fellowship
The scholarship is named in honor of Frederick Douglass – the AfricanAmerican social reformer, abolitionist, orator, writer, and international statesman – to highlight the characteristics that today’s young leaders need most: a keen intellect, a strong work ethic, and a global perspective. Consistent with Douglass’ legacy, Frederick Douglass Global Fellows are meritorious individuals who demonstrate high academic achievement, exemplary communication skills, possess the hallmarks of self-determination, exhibit characteristics of bold leadership, and who have a history of service to others. In the spirit of one of America’s most powerful intellectuals, communicators, and scholars, Frederick Douglass Global Fellows commit to sharing their experience and intercultural growth with peers and classmates, before, during, and after the fellowship. Check out more information on their website.

World Bank Group Youth Summit 2017: Technology and Innovation for Impact
December 4-5, 2017
1818 H Street, NW
We find ourselves amid the greatest information and communications revolution in human history and must take advantage of this rapid technological change to make the world more prosperous and inclusive. With youth being the early adopters and the most active users of Information and Communication technologies, their participation is essential in expanding the reach of technology and fulfilling the transformative potential of the digital revolution. This year’s Youth Summit will seek to provide youth with a forum to voice their concerns, share their ideas and learn from one another while discussing the challenges and opportunities created by this technological shift.
Structure of the Youth Summit
The two-day Summit will be held on the 4-5 December 2017 in Washington DC and livestreamed globally. The 2017 Youth Summit will have three components:
Plenary: The Summit will include dynamic high-level plenary sessions which aim to ignite conversation on fulfilling the opportunities of technological innovation. The plenary session will juxtapose youth representatives and speakers from the World Bank Group, the private sector, government, academia and civil society with the objective of engaging a plurality of views on how to reap sizable technological dividends.
Workshops: Attendees will participate in workshops that delve into the Summit’s three subthemes, giving participants an opportunity to share ideas and experiences and debate how to maximize the potential of Information Communication Technologies all around the globe.
Competition: On the second day of the Summit, the live final of the Youth Summit Competition ‘Technology and Innovation for Impact’ will take place. The competition finalists will have the opportunity to pitch their ideas to the audience of attendees and an expert jury.
