The Thiel Foundation has offered $100,000.00 to be paid out over two years as a fellowship award to 20 students, ages 15 to 20 years. To be clear, that is $100K per student, and 20 students under the age of 20 years, 20 under 20. Keil Taylor Fleischbein submitted to their request for proposal by answering their two questions:
Tell us one thing about the world that you strongly believe is true, but that most people think is not true.
How do you want to change the world?
The following is Keil’s response transcript, and here is his YouTube video submission for the Thiel Foundation Fellowship:
