Hansen Leadership Institute Fellows Program 2023 for Future Leaders (Fully-funded to the United States)


Deadline: January 23, 2023

Applications are open for the 2023 Hansen Leadership Institute Fellows. The Hansen Leadership Institute (HLI) is an exciting international program that brings together and trains future leaders from across the world in order to promote world peace and international cooperation.

The Hansen Leadership Institute is an exciting international program funded by a generous grant from the Fred J. Hansen Foundation. Fred J. Hansen’s vision was to create a more peaceful world through international cooperation. He desired for people from other nations to visit the United States to learn more about its culture, economy, and government. In turn, he wanted people of the United States to be more informed about the broader world and its peoples and customs. He knew it would take principled, passionate, indefatigable leadership to achieve this vision.

The Hansen Leadership Institute is guided by this vision of world peace brought about by greater mutual understanding and effective, ethical leadership. They seek this through generational change. They believe that future peace requires bringing young leaders together from regions of ongoing conflict in the world.

HLI seeks to bring more hope to a seemingly hopeless world. They do not believe that ever-present, ongoing violence and war is inevitable or acceptable. Hansen Fellows believe that they can radically change the world for the better. HLI exists to help them do it.
