What is “Heroes of Tomorrow”?

Heroes of Tomorrow is our sponsorship and talent development programme in which we support young people who have strong drive and motivation and who put maximum effort into achieving something extraordinary — whether in the classroom, in sports, or on a stage.

Heroes of Tomorrow is a sponsorship programme for sports federations, culture and science centres, and is accordingly not a programme it is possible to apply to. However, it is possible to apply for support from our support programme. See below. 

Do you wish to apply for support?

Equinor knows that there are tens of thousands of good projects that cannot be part of Heroes of Tomorrow, but who are making a big difference in the lives of children, youth and students throughout Norway. 

And it is these projects we want to find and support. It could be a sports team, your local brass band or a student association that all have good initiatives that may need some support.

Behind all these good causes and great organisations are thousands of parents and volunteers making waffles, rigging equipment, working as trainers and spending their free time creating opportunities for others. 

That’s why we have opened a new application portal where everyone can apply for funding for good initiatives for children, young people and students up to 25 years old. The portal will be open twice a year, once in the autumn and once in the spring.

Heroes of Tomorrow — mentors and ambassadors 

Young talents need role models, and through our Heroes of Tomorrow programme they get just that. We ensure that successful mentors and ambassadors who can point to major achievements in their past and current careers can work together with young talents, sharing their experience and helping young people achieve their goals.
