Overview

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 U.S. undergraduate and master’s students aged 20-25. 

For US applications, the deadline is March 15, 2022.

The 2022 Hansen Leadership Institute’s International Fellows were selected in early 2020. They have remained committed through two postponements, to come to the University of San Diego in July 2022. Therefore, the only search this year is for the United States students who will join these International Fellows.

Details

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. Nine 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 2022, 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 2022 at the University of San Diego School of Leadership and Education Sciences (SOLES).

A primary goal of the program focuses on creating an international community of young scholars who will use their summer experience as a foundation for creating lasting friendships and acquiring common practical understanding of a more peaceful future. Fellows receive hands-on training in team-building, public speaking, negotiation, mediation and working together to solve international problems. Moreover, they learn to listen actively and to look for common interests and building realistic bridges of cooperation. Classroom training complements local excursions to San Diego attractions such as Sea World, the Zoo,  a 4th of July Independence Day parade and a harbor cruise. Fellows meet and greet academic, political and business leaders to refine their own ideas and skills, while learning about the “American Way of Life.” Students leave San Diego with a “leadership toolbox” they can apply appropriately to their future challenges and endeavors. Participants have come from every corner of the globe, made life-long friendships and shaped their futures in a more positive direction.
