McCain Institute invites mid-career professionals to apply for a fully funded professional development program that empowers emerging global leaders through the McCain Institute’s tailored professional development experience. 


The program offers a unique blend of professional development, exposure to top-level policymakers and formal training in leadership. At four junctures throughout the year, the program provides hands-on training focused on values, ethics and leadership, media and communications skills; and best practice examples of American business, political and civic life. A key aspect of the program is each NGL’s preparation of an individual Leadership Action Plan. Aimed at defining the tangible steps and actions the NGLs will take to bring about positive change in their home communities, the Leadership Action Plan becomes the central project of the development year.

The program is year-long and begins in early September and runs through the end of August of the following calendar year. Participants are expected to be in the United States for the entire program year and attend all four leadership development modules along with contributing at their placement organizations to gain the full NGL experience.

  2. Aspiring Next Generation Leaders must demonstrate commitment to highest level of ethical leadership, show decisive recommendations that substantiate their leadership qualities, and make a commitment to return to their home environment at the end of the program year.
  3. Participants should have a decade or more of career experience. There is no specific age requirement, however, typical NGLs range from 30 to 45 years old.
  4. The NGL Program does not accept full-time students or full-time academics.
