Rhodes Trust/Schmidt


2024 Rhodes Trust/Schmidt Futures Rise Program for Young Students

The Rhodes Trust/Schmidt Futures Rise Program identifies promising young individuals, offering them lifelong opportunities as they dedicate themselves to serving others.

Commencing at ages 15–17, the program promotes a continuous journey of service and learning. It extends support through need-based scholarships, mentorship, networking, access to career development opportunities, and the prospect of additional funding as Rise Global Winners strive to address the most critical challenges facing humanity.



Rise is an initiative of Schmidt Futures and the Rhodes Trust, is the anchor program of that commitment. Rise builds on an existing partnership between Schmidt Futures and the Rhodes Trust, including the creation of the Schmidt Science Fellows program. Each organization has realized the power of building a network of talented people, and this partnership allows them both to focus on reaching a younger audience between the ages of 15 and 17.  As part of the network of Schmidt Organizations, the Rise community is committed to improving the quality of life for more people, enhancing human health and opportunity, and preserving as well as restoring essential planetary systems now and in the future.   

The Rhodes Trust, based at the University of Oxford, brings together and develops exceptional people from all over the world, and in all fields of study, who are impatient with the way things are and have the courage to act.


The Rhodes Trust/Schmidt Futures Rise Program is for ages 15–17 and encourages a lifetime of service and learning.
