Project

The Global Competitiveness Leadership Program seeks to have a Multiplier Effect in the Ibero-American region through its vast alumni network.

While at Georgetown, all participants will partake in workshops and courses on project development and are expected to develop a social impact project that can be carried out when they return to their home countries. Participants may come with an already-existing project/organization or may create a new project once they arrive. With this in mind, please answer the following questions regarding your project idea.

 

Please explain your project idea in detail (maximum 200 words)

If your project were to become a reality, who would benefit the most and how? (maximum 200 words)


If your project were to become a reality, what challenges might your project face? (maximum 200 words)


Essay Questions

Please respond carefully and completely to the essay questions below. Our program tends to have more applicants than can be accommodated, and the following questions are a key component in the selection process.
