Global edutech company Crimson Education recently launched the Crimson Youth Fund, a global initiative established for young people aged 13 - 21 who want to make a positive impact on their community.
The Crimson Youth Fund offers up to $50,000 USD of funding spanning over 15 countries, with each individual event and project having the opportunity to receive up to $1,500 USD in funding.
The Fund was launched first in Thailand at the Be Different: Unique Extracurriculars for US Undergraduate Applicants event on February 10, 2019.
Young minds contribute to some of the most impressive and innovative advancements in today’s society. Sujaree Xu, Managing Director of Crimson Education Thailand, says students have the ability to inspire better connectivity, access to information and in turn, advancement within their communities.
“The Crimson Youth Fund is designed to support young people who lack funding, an established network, and valuable resources to make their idea a reality. These transformative projects deliver value to communities through the initiative of local youths,” says Xu.
Crimson expects to see student-led and student-focused community events and projects that inspire their peers to pursue their passion in areas such as STEM, Leadership and Charity around the world including: app pitches, debating tournaments, athletics meets, charity fundraisers, student concerts and much more.
Applications to fund initiatives are now open. To learn more about the Crimson Youth Fund click here.
