As a longstanding partner of One Young World, DSM is proud to offer the DSM Brighter Living Scholarship – Nutrition for the One Young World Summit 2021 in Munich.

DSM supports SDG 2; ending hunger, achieving food security and improved nutrition, and promoting sustainable agriculture. This scholarship supports DSM’s strategy to increase the availability of high-quality affordable and aspirational nutritious foods in low and middle-income countries and is further related to tackling development issues and achieving sustainable agri-food systems.

The food security and livelihood crisis has been amplified by COVID-19 health risk, which is a major health concern and reason for further spurring investment in Nutrition. Immune health has never been more topical as now during the COVID-19 response period. Strong evidence shows that good nutrition is fundamental for a healthy immune system.

In line with the expansion objectives of DSM to support more countries, the scholarship seeks to support two young leaders (aged 18 – 30) from Kenya, Nigeria, Egypt, Tanzania, Zambia, Ghana, India, Bangladesh, Rwanda and Ethiopia who are delivering nutritional solutions for their communities. Specifically, the scholarship seeks entrepreneurs who are improving the agri-food value chain in one of the following ways:

  • Shaping opinions: raising awareness of the importance of a balanced and nutritional diet.
  • Building brands: developing responsible and nutritious brands that are attractive and affordable for the communities who need them most (especially those with low income, at base of the pyramid (BoP)).
  • Producing locally: sustainably producing local produce or nutritional products to serve local communities.
  • Improving smallholder farmers’ value chain: developing/implementing programs to eliminate post-harvest losses for smallholder farmers and improve the quality of their produce (especially elimination of aflatoxin in maize).
