The Future Global Leaders Fellowship is available to international students worldwide who wish to pursue undergraduate studies in the United States. This fellowship is intended for highly ambitious first-year undergraduate students with modest backgrounds who have demonstrated exceptional resilience and academic excellence. These students must be committed to becoming influential global leaders and understand that the extent of their impact on the world is directly linked to the level of power and influence they can achieve. The Fellowship offers numerous valuable opportunities to its recipients. Its primary aim is to support the growth of the Fellows and prepare them for induction into the Fortis Society.
The Fortis Society’s objective is to unite future leaders, based on their merit rather than privilege, by creating a formidable global network that will assist each other in reaching the highest levels of success, power, and global influence. Upon completing the program, FGL Fellows are welcomed into the Fortis Society, which is the world’s first private network of diverse leaders committed to each other’s success and to creating a better world. To date, our FGL Fellows have excelled in various fields such as finance, entrepreneurship, politics, international affairs, computer science, engineering, and more. The FGL Fellowship officially commences in early August with a mandatory 20-day intensive leadership training program that focuses on a rigorous leadership curriculum and building strong bonds through overcoming extreme physical and mental challenges in the wilderness. You can find additional information about our summer leadership training on our website.
