#HANSAN INSTITUTE LEADERSHIP IN THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA FOR US STUDENTS AND NON-US STUDENTS IS NOW IN PROGRESS TILL JANUARY 15, 2020.
This Summer Fellowship gives foreign and U.S. students the opportunity to develop leadership skills to help create a more peaceful future. Bursaries receive practical training in team building, public discussion, negotiation, mediation, and cooperation to resolve international problems. Leadership training includes meeting politicians and business leaders in order to learn real skills and how these skills can be implemented at home after the program. A splendid International program funded by a generous grant from the Fred J. Hansen Foundation, the Summer Institute for Leadership and International Cooperation of Hansen. In July between 2007 and 2019 ten three-week Institutes were held in San Diego, California. This program has provided a unique experience and program in international cooperation based on university leadership.
American men and women will once more participate in July 2020 to learn from experts about conflict resolution and social entrepreneurship from students from different developed nations and regions of society. To date 194 Hansen Alumni from 61 countries have stayed in contact, established a support network and cooperated with several Hansen Foundation-funded social enterprises. We are glad to announce that, in July 2020 at the San Diego School of Leadership and Education (SOLES), the Hansen Summer Institute will host its 10th group of young leaders.
All successful participants will be received round trip plane fare from their home country to the USA, accommodations, feeding, program cost, etc.
