It’s been an exciting month for us at Schmidt Futures and the Rhodes Trust. Together, we launched Rise — a flagship effort to find the world’s most extraordinary young people while still in secondary school, connect them in a global community, and provide them with lifelong resources to use their talents for good together with others who can help. Rise is our second effort together, building on our Schmidt Science Fellows program, and has begun worldwide in collaboration with dozens of partners on six continents.
