illuminate – an initiative by the Aga Khan Foundation
illuminate is an exciting programme that offers aspiring students insight into transformational ideas that are shaping the developing world today.
illuminate aims to broaden horizons, inspire a new generation of change-makers, and explore how students can contribute toward a better world, all whilst strengthening university applications. The students participate in a one day lecture event and subsequently take part in a multi-media essay competition to examine these themes.
Win or not, illuminate will help students to discover powerful new ideas and will add weight to university applications. Participation is completely free and students can also sign up to become a member of the illuminate Alumni network – be invited to exclusive events and hear all the latest AKF news – using the form at the bottom of the page.
If you would like to find out more about the next illuminate and join ambitious and socially-engaged Year 12 students to learn about the key issues shaping the developing world today – and help us create a safer, fairer and more prosperous world for all – sign up to be a member of our Alumni network.
