Explore human rights—on a free trip to Europe
In June 2016, recipients of our annual Global Citizen Scholarship will travel free to our Global Student Leaders Summit, Exploring Human Rights. The selected students will experience Europe through the lens of human rights, and collaborate with other globally minded students from around the world to design solutions to pressing human rights challenges.

Which one is most significant to you? Why?
Share your ideas for protecting this right.
As a Global Citizen, what part will you play in making this right a reality for all people?
