SHAWN MENDES PARTNERS WITH GOOGLE FOR WONDER GRANTS

Following the release of his fourth studio album, Wonder, Island’s Shawn Mendes and the Shawn Mendes Foundation have partnered with Google to award the first set of Wonder Grants to young changemakers.

Providing access to resources and a larger platform, Wonder Grants support creators around the world act on big ideas or complete projects across a range of fields, including music, film, education, science, environment and technology.

Google will also provide grantees with its latest technology to accelerate their projects and provide networking opportunities with other young changemakers.

“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,” said Mendes. “I am so inspired by their work and want to continue to empower young people daring to wonder in the service of others.”

Recipients of Wonder Grants will be chosen by the Shawn Mendes Foundation, which has already selected five, including 18-year-old college senior, social activist and poet Fanta Ballo of Harlem—seen on Mendes' Instagram here. The remaining four recipients will be announced on the foundation's Instagram in the new year.
