Providing opportunities for brilliant refugee students to study at top-notch universities in the United States.

The Global Leadership Incubator (GLI) is an international nonprofit organization created to identify, recruit, mentor, and support outstanding, high-performing scholars, young leaders, and young entrepreneurs worldwide. We begin our work with students as early as the first year of high school, and extend our support through college and into graduate school or first job.

The GLI has chosen students of Tibetan and Himalayan origin as its first group of developing leaders.  The GLI’s Tibet Himalaya Project is being created with the support and collaboration of His Holiness the Dalai Lama and the Central Tibetan Administration. It is designed to inspire Tibetan and Himalayan students to aim high academically, personally, and as global citizens.
Participation in the GLI is a partnership between students and the GLI network, offered to exceptional students demonstrating distinctive leadership, initiative, talent, and performance. GLI students will have access to many resources designed to bolster and enhance their college years, professional careers, and lives.
