Botín Scholars I

Each October top university students from Latin America embark on a program to strengthen their vocation for public service. The intensive two-month program, designed by the Fondación Marcelino Botín in collaboration with Brown University, begins at the Watson Institute with lectures by former world leaders, team-building exercises, and talks by Institute faculty members on such subjects as democracy and globalization. Following their session at Brown, Botín Scholars spend several weeks in Europe, engaging with academics and policymakers. While at Brown, the students produce group blogs of their thoughts and experiences – their "takeaways" – on the Global Conversation.
