Hispanic Leaders Program
About the program
The Hispanic Leaders program is a yearly educational seminar held in Spain that focuses on the country's political, economic, and cultural realities, as well as the relationship between Spain and the United States.​​​ It consists of on-site visits and meetings with leaders in several sectors. The program is sponsored by the Fundación Carolina with the aim of increasing the knowledge of Spain among the Hispanic community in the United States.

This year, the program will take place from December 9 - 15, 2017. ​

The 2017 application is closed and candidates have been informed of the status of their application. This year the Fundación Carolina received a record-breaking 170 applications, making the selection process very competitive. The Embassy wishes to thank applicants for their interest in this program and encourage those not selected to apply again next year!
