ENTER A WORLD OF CHANGE MAKERS

In 2017, the Johnson & Johnson One Young World Scholarship Program was launched offering eight scholarships to those working on the front lines of delivering care the opportunity to attend the 2017 OYW Summit and to be coached by senior J&J executives.

In total, 2,249 applications from more than 160 countries were received for the 2017 Johnson & Johnson One Young World Scholarships with eight scholar recipients selected by One Young World to attend the 2017 Summit. (Note: Johnson & Johnson was not involved in the selection process).

Scholarships are essential to making each One Young World Summit accessible to the world’s finest young leaders, and not just those of the global north. This is so important to us, not least because these delegates are making an impact in the world’s most vulnerable societies, but because of the invaluable lessons impart to the One Young World delegation as a whole. By supporting delegates to attend One Young World, Johnson & Johnson has made abundantly clear its outstanding commitment to the young doctors, nurses, midwives and caregivers who are leading change for a healthier future the world over.
