I am a Wild Card Candidate

A Wild Card candidate is a student or a young professional working for a company or organisation who does not have sufficient financial means to take part in the Nudge Global Impact Challenge. By applying for a Wild Card you enter a selection process where your participation fee (EUR 4.500,–) will be sponsored. This means you only have to pay for your travel costs and accommodation during the ‘Grand Finale’ closure event in the Netherlands (EUR 600,- incl. VAT for two hotel nights, food and drinks / invoiced separately by the venue). The ‘Grand Finale’ closure event will be scheduled in the second quarter of 2021. All Wild Card applicants will be notified regarding the selection before mid-August 2020.

The Wild Card application process has closed as of 1 July 2020. Applications will re-open in December for the Nudge Global Impact Challenge 2021.
