El programa de becarios de la Fundación Obama seeks to support dynamic, collaborative, rising leaders from around the world in an innovative one-year academic experience.
The Obama Foundation Scholars Program will give rising young leaders around the world who are already making a difference in their communities the opportunity to take their work to the next level through a newly designed curriculum that brings together academic, skills-based, and hands-on learning. The Scholars Program empowers individuals with a proven commitment to service with the tools they need to make their efforts more effective, to identify innovative solutions to complex global problems, and promote change through values-based leadership.
El programa creará relaciones duraderas entre los líderes emergentes que se comprometen a trabajar juntos para resolver los desafíos más apremiantes de nuestro tiempo, creando una red global que alcance todos los problemas y fronteras. Después de completar el programa, los Becarios de la Fundación Obama volverán a sus comunidades y continuarán el importante trabajo que comenzaron en el programa implementando su propio plan de acción personalizado. También tendrán la oportunidad de desempeñar un papel en los esfuerzos de la Fundación Obama para inspirar, capacitar y conectar a líderes en aumento de todo el mundo.
Obama Foundation Scholars at Columbia University will participate in Columbia World Projects, a new initiative in which faculty and researchers from Columbia will partner with governments, nonprofits, the private sector, and intergovernmental organizations to create tangible solutions to real-world issues. The inaugural cohort at Columbia University will participate in a rigorous, immersive program that brings together academic, skills-based, and experiential learning, designed by Columbia University in consultation with the Obama Foundation. The program will also take advantage of the unique opportunities for engagement that come with being at one of the world’s most important centers of research and in the city of New York.
In addition to classroom studies, the Obama Foundation will offer a robust program of leadership development throughout the academic year to help both cohorts of Scholars gain the real-world skills, networks, tools, and experiences to expand the impact of their work when they return home. These may include leadership development convenings; program experiences in Chicago and Washington, DC; speaker series with innovators across a variety of sectors; individual and group service projects; mentorship through the Obama Foundation network; and action plan development for post-program activities.
