Apply for a spot in the 2019 #NextGen Summer Institute HERE
Deadline to apply: April 30th, 2019

The new CIR #NextGen Summer Institute will provide 10 high school students with the opportunity to learn more about international affairs and global citizenship. As an 8-week program (June 3 – August 1), the #NextGen Leader cohort will meet once per week to discuss topics related to the UN Sustainable Development Goals with a selected speaker at the CIR office. In addition to speaker discussions, #NextGen Leaders will be responsible for writing two (2) 1-page research articles that will be published in a monthly “#NextGen Reports” newsletter.



#NextGen Leaders will have access to many of CIR’s world-class speakers, including many former ambassadors, CEOs, professors, and more. As a small cohort, #NextGen Leaders will have the opportunity to network with each other, the speakers, and the broader CIR community at meetings and during CIR events throughout the summer. #NextGen Leaders will receive complimentary admission to many of CIR’s summer events and will be able to network with other attendees. The #NextGen Summer Institute will also be a strong component to a student’s resume or college application(s). In addition to networking, all #NextGen Leaders who successfully complete the requirements of the program will receive a Global Citizenship Letter signed by Santa Fe Mayor Alan Webber that can also be added to students’ resumes and college applications.



The Institute will begin on Thursday, June 3rd and end on Thursday, August 1st, 2019. Selected #NextGen Leaders will be expected to attend at least six of the eight weekly meetings and must contribute at least two (2) research reports. In addition to attending meetings, #NextGen Leaders should attend and assist with set-up/clean-up at as many CIR events as possible (note: many occur in the early evenings from 5:00-7:00 PM).

To apply to the #NextGen Summer Institute, students should be current high school students (sophomore, junior, or seniors as of August 2019) near Santa Fe. #NextGen Leaders are expected to attend as many meetings and events as possible, so students must have access to reliable transportation. Applicants for the #NextGen Summer Institute must demonstrate an interest in learning more about international affairs.
