Because we're giving away $10,000 awards to pursue your dreams.

Dear OZY family,

Are you a genius, or do you know one? OZY is partnering with Chevrolet to present the latest installment of the OZY Genius Awards. Ten college students will be selected to receive grants of up to $10,000 to help them pursue their dreams. The contest launches today, and applications can be submitted through April 30, 2021. If you have a big idea you want OZY to get behind or you know a student you want to nominate, now’s the time.

We all could use some help turning our dreams into reality. With the OZY Genius Awards — which first launched in 2016 — your big idea could win you $10,000 and a mentor who will help launch your project and change the world. We have a fantastic field of experts judging this year’s entries, from TV host Padma Lakshmi to investor Marc Lasry to activist and former NBA star Jalen Rose. Plus, you’ll be joining a distinguished group of winners already making their mark in a variety of fields.

OZY has a knack for identifying talent long before anyone else: Before you witnessed Amanda Gorman’s genius delivery of a powerful poem onstage at the 2021 presidential inauguration, she was an OZY Genius Award winner. Now it’s your turn! 

How? Click here to apply or to nominate your favorite genius so they can get started on their application right away.

Students or parents with questions can reach out here, and schools wanting to get involved can do so here.

Feel free to mail the OZY EDU team at Genius@ozy.com. We have mentors and staff on hand to help inspire you. 

If your calling is to help support our OZY Geniuses on their way to making a brighter tomorrow, please reach out and let us know.

Now is the time to realize your dreams with the OZY Genius Awards.

Be well,
Carlos Watson
OZY CEO and Co-Founder
