The U.S. Hispanic Leaders Program began in 1998 as an initiative of the Government of Spain with the goal of revealing the reality of Spain to young American Hispanics and creating a network of contacts among leading Hispanic professionals in the political, cultural, business and academic spheres and their Spanish counterparts, through an agenda in Spain dealing with the group’s specific interests. Since then, the program led to the identification of collaboration opportunities between our two countries, contributing to the empowerment of the U.S. Hispanic community and ultimately strengthening bilateral relations.
The U.S. Hispanic Leaders Program annually selects a group of Hispanic participants between 30 and 45 years of age, who are prominent professionals especially motivated to promote the interests of the U.S. Hispanic community, broaden their own knowledge of Spain’s contemporary realities and/or strengthen ties with the international Hispanic community.
Candidates are chosen through an open selection process based on compliance with the requirements set forth in the call for candidates. Only completed applications with the required documentation attached that are received through this webpage by the established deadline will be considered. Finalist candidates may be asked to sit for a videoconference interview during the candidate evaluation process.
The U.S. Hispanic Leaders Program will take place October 16-23, 2022, in Madrid and Malaga.
