"You represent hope for our family and hope for our community."
"Those are the words my mother spoke to me when I found out that I had been sponsored and chosen to receive a Developing Global Leader Scholarship. I knew I had been given a gift from the Lord, and with it came great responsibility."
– Jamila Wangui

a full ride university scholarship changes everything

Through sponsorship, Developing Global Leaders (DGL) offers Young Life leaders in the world's poorest developing countries a pathway to a future they never thought possible – the opportunity to go to college in their own country and make an impact in their community with the Gospel.

$275 per month is all it takes
Since 2009, Young Life's Developing Global Leaders program has awarded more than 1000 full ride college scholarships​ to high potential young adults in over 60 countries.

With the modest cost of university tuition in the developing world, DGL delivers high impact for every dollar invested.

$275/month = Full 4-Year Sponsorship for a Developing Global Leader

Partial sponsorships start at any level. Sometimes families, churches, Young Life areas, or groups of individuals join together to fully fund a student.

HOW DGL WORKS

We identify current Young Life leaders in developing countries who have great potential to succeed academically and in leadership – they have demonstrated diligence in their studies and faithfulness in ministry.

the unfortunate dilemma – something has to give

Often these ambitious young people work to help support their family. Add school and ministry to their schedule and something has to give – unfortunately, it is usually their volunteer ministry.

DGL SOLVES THAT PROBLEM THROUGH STUDENT SPONSORSHIP

A Developing Global Leader scholarship creates a way for these dynamic, talented young people to stay actively engaged in local ministry while also attending college. For many, this is a life-changing opportunity that helps end the cycle of poverty in their family.

it's a high impact investment that changes lives
A FULL $275 SPONSORSHIP PROVIDES:
  • Tuition at a 4-year college or university in their own country
  • Books and other school-related expenses
  • Ongoing Young Life leadership training
  • One-on-one mentorship
  • Small living stipend to cover transportation and other costs

Join our community of generous supporters

It takes the generosity of many individuals and organizations to fully fund scholarships for students around the world. Their collective gifts provide necessary capital to award scholarships year after year. Sponsors include:

Individuals and Families
Churches and small groups
Private Foundations
Corporate Sponsors
Prayer Partners

Sponsors are encouraged to connect and engage with their sponsored student through student blogs and social platforms championing them on their journey through prayer and encouragement. For those who are interested, DGL coordinates conference calls with sponsors and students and translators when necessary. Often the friendships that form last long after graduation. ​
