The International Fellowship Programs office is proud to administer a new university-wide program that awards fellowships to outstanding residential mid-career professionals to attend a session at the Salzburg Global Seminar through a grant from the McKnight Foundation.
The Salzburg Global Seminar convenes imaginative thinkers from different cultures and institutions, organizes problem-focused initiatives, supports leadership development and engages opinion-makers through active communication networks, all in partnership with leading institutions from around the world and across different sectors of society. Sessions average about five-days supporting the mission of the Seminar to challenge present and future leaders to solve issues of global concerns. Beginning in 1947, the Salzburg Global Seminar has convened more than 25,000 fellows representing more than 160 countries.
The Seminar welcomes applications to its annual programs which bring together approximately sixty distinguished international participants including emerging leaders, known as "Fellows" from government, business, academia, and nongovernmental organizations. The sessions are cross-sectoral and cross-cultural in approach, with the objective of broadening and deepening perspectives to promote informed action and far-sighted decision making among key professionals worldwide. Particular emphasis is placed on generating cutting-edge ideas and on developing proposals for action.
The International Fellowship Programs office is accepting applications for a limited number of full or partial scholarships to attend sessions that are available based on certain eligibility criteria. Please visit the Seminar’s website at www.SalzburgGlobal.org for additional information about the sessions.
