Empowering young leaders across the globe 
to drive forward positive change.

Investing in young leaders to create a meaningful impact to society

At Johnson & Johnson, we want to build leadership capacity in the health and caregiving arena and to empower our young leaders both within our organization and in the outside world, to make a meaningful long-term impact to society through positive change.

45 Johnson & Johnson employees from across the globe have participated to date

The Johnson & Johnson One Young World Scholarship Program

In 2017, Johnson & Johnson partnered with OYW to launch the Johnson & Johnson One Young World Scholarship Program, offering eight global scholarships to aspiring young leaders on the front lines of delivering care, the opportunity to attend the 2017 OYW Summit.

The Scholarships are open to those aged 18-30 years who are working for, or involved with underserved communities in the health/care giving arena across the spectrum of care (from family care givers to health care professionals) such as NGOs, social enterprises, community based organisations and individual leaders.

In total, 2,249 applications from more than 160 countries were received for the Johnson & Johnson One Young World Scholarships when applications closed on 19 June. The eight scholar recipients for 2017 have now been selected by One Young World. (Note: Johnson & Johnson was not involved in the selection process).

Many congratulations to our 2017 Johnson & Johnson OYW Scholars

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.
