Letter: All Bar None Scholarship for Caribbean nationals 18-30 to attend One Young World Summit 2014
Published on January 6, 2014 Email To Friend    Print Version

Dear Young Caribbean Leaders,

Applications for the One Young World Summit are now open!

Do you have a vision to make your country and CARICOM a better place? Would you like to meet and learn the keys of success from world leaders like Kofi Annan, Sir Richard Branson, Bill Clinton, Arianna Huffington or Professor Muhammad Yunus? Then read on, as this is the opportunity of a lifetime.

One Young World was founded in 2009 and every year the Organization brings together young leaders from across the globe to find innovative solutions for some of the world’s most pressing issues including: climate change, youth unemployment, human rights, security, HIV/AIDS and governance. The summit serves as a space for the most talented change makers to formulate and share innovative solutions for some of the world's most pressing issues.

The 2014 One Young World Summit takes place on October 15 – 19, 2014, in Dublin, Ireland, and some Caribbean countries are eligible for the All Bar None Scholarship. The scholarship was created to increase participation from underrepresented countries.

While the application process is competitive, if selected, the All Bar None sponsorship includes:

● The cost of travel to and from Dublin, Ireland.
● Hotel accommodation
● Delegate access to the One Young World Summit 2014
● Catering which includes breakfast, lunch and dinner
● Transport between your hotel accommodation and the Summit venue
● Summit hand­outs and support materials

Sponsorship is also available through corporate partnership and crowd funding.

Our region was proudly represented by a group of Caribbean delegates in October 2013 in Johannesburg, South Africa. To find out more about this life-changing experience, you may contact your country’s Ambassador at, who will be happy to share their One Young World experience with you and offer tips on securing your spot at this year’s summit.

Our region is changing before our eyes and young people have great ideas that can make a difference. We urge you to take advantage of this important leadership opportunity to grow professionally and create the change that we believe is possible!

To apply for the All Bar None Scholarship or general entry to represent your country and the Caribbean on the world stage, please visit: and

See you in Dublin!
