Offer: Looking for young leaders and changemakers: WISE Learners’ Voice Program 2012! Apply by June 30th

Following the success of the 2010 and 2011 Learners’ Voice Program, in which 49 learners from 31 countries were carefully selected to participate, the World Innovation Summit for Education (WISE) kicks-off its search for the 2012 generation of Learners.

WISE invites representatives of institutions, organizations, programs and networks to nominate outstanding and motivated young learners to participate in the WISE Learners’ Voice Program. And, for the first time, Learners are also invited to apply personally by submitting an application which needs to be endorsed by a recommender.

The WISE Learners’ Voice Program engages young learners and supports their development as change-makers and advocates in the field of education. The 30 young people will be invited to participate actively in the 2012 WISE Summit in Doha (November 13 -15) and will have the opportunity to take part in amazing global experiences throughout 2013.

Since 2011, selected WISE Learners have had the opportunity to work collaboratively on the theme of Increasing Access to Education through Innovation. In order to research the theme, they attended the 6th World Youth Congress in Brazil, the eLearning Africa conference in Benin, and the India Youth Forum, among other important events. They also visited on-the-ground projects to gain practical insights and understanding of the issue.

Who can be nominated/who can apply: Highly motivated learners/recent graduates with outstanding or original academic/learning experiences, aged 18 to 25 (as of November 13, 2012).

The process: Nominations and applications are currently being accepted. Download the official nomination/application form from the WISE website: www.wise-qatar.org. Please note that only the first 300 applications received online will be evaluated.

When: Submit entries online at www.wise-qatar.org by June 30, 2012, 23.59 GMT.

Selection criteria: Participants should be currently enrolled in (or recently graduated from) a course of study at a recognized college, university or training program and be willing to contribute some of their time to the Program throughout the year. Complete criteria can be found online at www.wise-qatar.org.
