Description

Awarded every two years, the Rolex Awards for Enterprise provide visionary men and women worldwide with the financial support and recognition needed to carryout innovative projects. The 2020 Rolex Awards will recognize five young leaders, between the ages of 18 and 30 years old, who have a ground-breaking proposal or initiative that will help to expand knowledge of our world and improve the quality of life on the planet. Applications must be broadly in the areas of the environment, applied science and technology, or exploration.

In addition to demonstrating a spirit of enterprise and leadership, candidates must put forward projects or work plans that have a clear purpose, are original and have the potential for significant impact.
