WORKING in collaboration with the J.C. Jacobsen Foundation, the Carlsberg Bequest is granting a full scholarship to a Malaysian youth to take part in the Young Global Pioneers (YGP) Talent Network.
This involves a three-week learning journey in Tanzania and Zanzibar from July 31 to Aug 20.
The selected Malaysian youth who should be aged between 18 to 22 years old, will embark on the learning journey with 20 other like-minded youth from all over the world. They will establish their own life-long YGP Talent Network to learn from and inspire each other.
The talented youth will be exposed to different learning environments through meeting leaders of local businesses and universities, visiting SOS Children’s Village, spending a day at a safari, learning about climate change and circular economy as well as embracing local art, music and customs.
“This scholarship is provided by the Carlsberg Bequest in the memory of brewer JC Jacobsen in Denmark, that supports practical, socially beneficial activities, particularly in connection with science.
“We are honoured with the opportunity to nominate one Malaysian youth to represent the J.C. Jacobsen Foundation, a philanthropic arm by Carlsberg Malaysia.
“I encourage knowledge and adventures-seeking youth to apply for the scholarship and not to miss this unique learning opportunity,” said JC Jacobsen Foundation executive director Pearl Lai.
The YGP learning architecture is developed by Prof Subramanian Rangan, a professor of strategy at INSEAD.
The learning journeys are designed in partnership with companies, universities, SOS Children’s Village, Save the Children, WWF and other affiliated organisations.
The YGP Talent Network will be based on the talented youths’ shared experiences on the three-week learning journey and is strengthened through the interaction, teamwork, discussions and reflections within the group.
On completion of the journey, YGP will continue to support and facilitate the network for life-long friendships and global inspiration.
The Carlsberg Bequest scholarship covers all activities in Tanzania and Zanzibar, including meals, domestic flights and accommodation as well as expenses like international flight tickets, insurance, vaccinations, visa and pocket money.
