UN Sustainable Development Goals & Our Countries
Choose a goal. Identify a country. Enter a proposal. Be a changemaker.
In 2015, countries of the United Nations set the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs or Global Goals) “to end poverty, protect the planet, and ensure prosperity for all.” AFS-USA has aligned the Project: Change scholarship competition with the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals to amplify, and encourage action toward, its ambitious vision for a sustainable, peaceful world.
To apply for the scholarship, submit a project proposal idea that works on SDGs in one of the countries available. Click on a goal or country to start learning and brainstorming for your Project: Change proposal idea.
