Each year since 2010, the Botín Foundation, headquartered in Santander, Cantabria, Spain, has offered 40 talented university students from throughout Latin America the opportunity to take part in the Program on Leadership, Liberal Arts and Public Service.
The members of the fourth edition of the program began their week at Brown in late September 2013.
The scholars spend the first week of their intensive two-month program at Brown University. During their time in Providence, they attend lectures and classes offered by Brown faculty and experts on Latin America. Guest lecturers have included former Chilean president and Brown University Professor-at-Large Ricardo Lagos and Leonel Fernández, the former president of the Dominican Republic.
The scholars spend the remainder of their time in Spain.
