Our Former Year 11 student is Rise 100 Winner

Published on 20 October 2023

Congratulations to Iman who competed against thousands of young people across the world to be selected

Massive congratulations to our former Year 11 student Imam who has been chosen as a Rise for the World Global 100 winner.

Iman competed against thousands of young people across the world - we are so proud of her life changing success.

The Rise programme is sponsored by the Schmidt foundation (the founders of Google) and 100 young people annually are identified from the thousands that apply. The winning cohort this year has representation from 43 different countries around the world.

And a huge thanks to Manchester United Foundation for giving our students this amazing opportunity!

Manchester United Foundation promotes the Rise programme amongst its partners and networks, whilst identifying and mentoring exceptionally talented young people, to create lifelong lasting opportunities, that will positively impact young people from diverse backgrounds and their local communities.

Each year, Rise invites 15-17-year-olds from around the world to participate in the Rise Challenge. Unlike many traditional applications, Rise uses videos, projects and group interviews so applicants have multiple opportunities to showcase their potential, with alternative options for applicants who do not have access to technology.

Some of the opportunities available for Iman as a Rise for the World Global 100 winner include:

Residential Summit

· One fully funded in-person residential summit with other members of the Rise Global Winner cohort. Attendance at this summit is required to maintain Global Winner status.

Higher Education Scholarships

· A four-year, post-secondary education scholarship, including tuition and a living stipend, based on need and where not already covered by financial aid.

Funding for Ideas on a Competitive Basis

· An opportunity to apply for funding to experiment with innovative ideas to address major problems in local communities or around the world — ranging, for example, from seed money to start a social enterprise to a grant for a non-profit. Funds will be available competitively to Winners and Finalists.

Network Matching

· Access to a network of other Global Winners, community members, and partner organizations, as well as career development programming, delivered primarily through technology (via our matching platform).

Starter Technology Packages

· A technology package, such as a laptop or tablet, to be determined and issued immediately before or during the first semester/term of post-secondary education.

Our Principal Mr Eldon said: “This is a fantastic tribute to Iman, her family, Manchester Academy and our community.”
