This year, 14 of the 17 UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDG) were represented among the winning projects.

Each awardee will receive a grant of up to $3,000 to fund their project, and they will be invited to participate to attend group sessions, between August and December, on topics that will support their entrepreneurial journey towards impacting their local communities positively.

Since the launch of the grant, the IB has received applications from inspirational students around the globe. Of the 86 awarded projects this year, 27 are non-IB schools, underscoring the IB’s dedication to making its educational programmes accessible to a wider group of students.
