We have BIG news! HSI is now HLI! The Hansen Summer Institute for Leadership and International Cooperation is now, simply, the Hansen Leadership Institute. In January 2020, we will have a new website — hansenleadershipinstitute.org — to go with our new name. The deadline for all international applications is January 15, 2020. For US applications, the deadline is March 15, 2020
For the second year in a row, we’ve been named one of the Top 10 Summer Fellowships!
“This summer fellowship is an opportunity for international and U.S. students to build leadership skills and better cultural understanding to help form a more peaceful future. Fellows receive hands-on training in team-building, public speaking, negotiation, mediation and working together to solve international problems. Leadership training includes meeting with political and business leaders to learn real-world skills and how to implement these skills at home after the program. The program is located in San Diego, CA and open to international and U.S. undergraduate and master’s students aged 20-25.” ProFellow
The Hansen Summer Institute on Leadership and International Cooperation is an exciting international program funded by a generous grant from the Fred J. Hansen Foundation. Ten three-week Institutes took place in San Diego, California in July between 2007 and 2019. This program has provided a unique University-based leadership experience and program in international cooperation.
Again in July 2020, American men and women will join students from a variety of developing countries and regions of social strife to learn from experts and one another about conflict resolution and social entrepreneurship. To date, 194 Hansen Alumni from 61 countries, have remained in contact, provided a network of support, and worked together on a number of social ventures funded by the Hansen Foundation. We are happy to announce the Hansen Summer Institute will host its tenth group of young leaders in July 2020 at the University of San Diego School of Leadership and Education Sciences
