THE LEARNING CHALLENGE

Designed by you. Led by you. Supported by GripTape.

APPLICATION GUIDELINES

  • You’re completely in charge of deciding what topic or skills you explore and how you do it.
  • Your learning doesn’t depend on school, so you can do this on your own outside of class time.
  • No more than 1/3 of your time in the Challenge is spent in adult-led experiences like classes, camp, or study abroad programs.
  • You can use your grant and complete your Challenge in 10 weeks.
  • You are between 15 and 19 years old.
  • You live or go to school in the U.S.
