I want every young person in Kosovo to know that, if there is a will, there is a way, and things can be changed for the better.
2015 Transformational Leadership Program Participant
The five-year Transformational Leadership Program: Scholarships and Partnerships aims to help train a new generation of Kosovar leaders to drive significant change in priority economic, political, and social areas. The program will provide scholarships for Kosovars to pursue 185 master's degrees and 160 professional certificates at US universities. When alumni return to Kosovo they will be placed in key institutions, especially in the public sector, where they can utilize their new knowledge and skills to influence change from within. In addition World Learning and its partners will build the capacity of the University of Prishtina to prepare graduates to meet the needs of the growing economy and developing state. This will ensure that the leadership training process is both domestic and sustainable.
World Learning and USAID will implement the program in partnership with the Government of Kosovo, the University of Prishtina, as well as Arizona State University, Indiana University, the University of Minnesota, and Dartmouth College in the United States.
