Inaugural cohort shines: SCM Youth Scholarship ends, find out details here

SCM youth scholarship

SCM Youth is a platform for young people who will create the future we should have. An SCM Young Fellow is a young change-maker between the ages of 10 and 24 who has pursued an extraordinary idea that has the potential to change the way we work and make things better, and wants to tell the world about it. Young SCM scholars critically analyze a problem facing the world, consider solutions to it, research it and produce a scientific paper about it or prove it with a proof of concept.
