Shawn Mendes and the Shawn Mendes Foundation have partnered with Google to award the first set of Wonder Grants to young changemakers around the world.
Wonder Grants aim to support and empower young creatives launching their projects across various fields, including music, film, education, science, environment and technology. Google will also provide the first grantees with its latest technology to enhance their missions.
"I’m grateful to be able to provide grants through my Foundation, with Google’s support, to young leaders who are on the ground innovating change," Mendes said in a press release. "I am so inspired by their work and want to continue to empower young people daring to wonder in the service of others."
