Applications are now open for the Crossroads Emerging Leaders Program 2020!


Applications are now open for the Crossroads Emerging Leaders Program 2020!
Following the success of previous editions and with the help of many supporters, we have enhanced the Crossroads Emerging Leaders Program to be even more impactful this year. We are aiming to reach 10,000 applicants to partake in this unique and fully funded multi-disciplinary curriculum designed and delivered by Harvard faculty. We are excited to increase our reach beyond the Middle East, Africa, South Asia and Central Asia this year to include Latin America and the United States. The Program remains dedicated to high-potential talent facing social and financial challenges.
This year’s Program will commence in September 2019 with access to curated online courses produced by HarvardX, a division of Harvard University. Students will undergo a rigorous selection process, and the top students will be selected to attend the culmination of the Program, a week long program conducted in Dubai in partnership with DIFC, and under the patronage of Sheikh Maktoum bin Mohamed bin Rashid Al Maktoum.
