The United Nations Association-USA would like to personally invite Middlebury students with an interest in global affairs and advocacy to the UNA-USA Global Leadership Summit June 10-12 in Washington, DC. Students will meet with high-ranking U.S. Government and UN officials, learn from global experts, gain invaluable leadership tools, and urge Congress to stand with the UN. Middlebury students can register for free using the code “GenUN_Scholarship2018” – as long as you plan to attend all 3 days of the Summit (June 10-12).
Travel and housing scholarships are available on a limited basis. Selected participants will receive a travel scholarship (reimbursement for up to $350 for food, registration, and travel to Washington, D.C.), and will receive free housing in the GW dorm housing block. Students should be committed to leading UNA chapters at their schools, and be available to participate in the entire Summit. Apply for the scholarship here by May 11.
