Global Network Foundation Grant

Organization - Global Network Foundation
Grant Amount - $200,000
Foundation - Mott Foundation
Grant Purpose - The program goal is to promote regional cooperation, international integration, and peace and security in Central Eurasia. To this end, the Global Network Foundation organizes an innovative, transformational leadership program targeting two former Soviet regions -- Central Asia and the Caucasus -- in need of international attention and assistance. Through training workshops, policy seminars, and other capacity-building opportunities, the grantee will continue to build the skills of promising leaders from Central Eurasia and raise awareness about these regions among Western leaders. To date, 247 outstanding young leaders from the Central Eurasia region have participated in an annual summer leadership academy, and these participants continue to network actively through a series of annual alumni events and activities in the region. The Global Network Foundation was established in 2002 by the Society of International Business Fellows and is based in Atlanta, Georgia.
