JUNIOR ADVISORY BOARD 2022

Each year we invite junior students from high schools worldwide to form part of the IE university Junior Advisory Board.

We’re looking for well-rounded students with a wide variety of interests, talents and opinions. Fifteen exceptional candidates, who stand out from the crowd showing their inquisitive minds and innovative spirit, are selected! We welcome them to participate in a one-week event and grant them an 80% scholarship to study at IE University. During the week, students take part in a series of workshops and conferences with top senior research professors from different fields of study to develop tools and work on the final project. Most importantly, students get to have input into the future of higher education since the project are presented to the IE University’s Executive Committee. The agenda is complemented with extracurricular activities and team building events.

If you enjoy public speaking and are happy to share your considered opinions in a multicultural, academic setting, this event is for you!

We have entered the decade of change, a time when every single action can determine the success or the failure in the strive to save our planet. The circular economy model offers an approach – perhaps the most powerful – towards a more sustainable and equitable future.

Starting from this premises participants are asked to consider the role of civil society, business and institutions in a successful shift to circularity and a self-sufficient system.

Zoom, Google Meet/Hangouts, YouTube, Loom
