Innovator Program

At the AIC RAISE, we believe young people can positively change the world. We witness their commitment to make a meaningful impact every day, and our goal is to support their ideas and actions through initiatives like the AIC RAISE Student Innovator’s program

A strong focus on social impact

The program seeks applications from 6th Std up to all High School Students (ages 10-17) who are motivated to start or continue a social impact initiative. Through a competitive application review process, the AIC RAISE will support up to 1000 students every year to create, innovate or expand on an impactful project of their own design. Finalists will receive access to a newly expanded network of peers and program funding to transform their powerful idea into reality.
