This August, Preparing Global Leaders Institute (PGLI) will hold its 5th jubilee edition on the premises of FON University in Struga and Skopje.
PGLI 2016 Delegates will take short courses on political economy, international relations, diplomacy, foreign policy, leadership and communication from a distinguished, award-winning faculty. Beyond the classroom delegates will be challenged to develop and demonstrate their skills in media, speech, parliamentary, and advertising simulations and competitions.
Complementary to the official program, delegates will hear political dignitaries discuss their leadership experiences and have the opportunity to socialize with talented and accomplished young leaders from 50+ countries. Finally, delegates will benefit from immersion in the host country during an 10-day stay on the beautiful coast of the Lake of Ohrid, a UNESCO heritage site, and concluding weekend in the Macedonian Capital Skopje, alongside recreational trips to Ohrid, St. Naum, and Vevchani.
Priority deadline for all categories is April 3, 2016. Financial support is allocated on a rolling basis and earlier applications are given priority, therefore, applicants in need of financial support are urged to apply before the priority deadline.
PGLS is an intensive one week program in Moscow, Russia that engages students through stimulating lectures and challenging simulations. Participants will work closely with other young leaders from around the world and build enduring friendships. Students will join a distinguished faculty that includes PGLF founder Dr. Sam Potolicchio (Georgetown University, New York University, RANEPA), Dr. Grigore Pop-Eleches (Princeton) and Dr. Branden Thornhill-Miller (Oxford, Sorbonne). Delegates will listen to world-class professors, politicians, diplomats, and other distinguished speakers. They will also participate in a number of simulations including parliamentary, speech-making, diplomatic and business competitions.
Applications are considered and decisions rendered on a rolling basis. Although July 1, 2016 is the final deadline to apply, we encourage students to apply as early as possible as many spaces will be filled prior to the July 1, 2016 deadline. Students seeking financial aid to offset a portion of their tuition should apply by July 15, 2016. Applying early will also allow students to book flights earlier and will allow more time to obtain a visa if necessary
