O programa dos scholars da fundação de 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.
O programa criará relacionamentos duradouros entre os líderes emergentes que estão comprometidos em trabalhar juntos para resolver os desafios mais prementes do nosso tempo, criando uma rede global que atinja questões e fronteiras. Depois de concluir o programa, os bolsistas da Fundação Obama retornarão às suas comunidades e continuarão o importante trabalho iniciado no programa, implementando seu próprio plano de ação personalizado. Eles também terão a oportunidade de desempenhar um papel nos esforços da Fundação Obama para inspirar, treinar e conectar líderes em ascensão de todo o 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.
