About this grant

This grant supports an innovative, transformational leadership program targeting two former Soviet regions — Central Asia and the Caucasus — in need of international attention and assistance. The goal of the program is to promote regional cooperation, international integration, and peace and security in Central Eurasia. Through training workshops, policy seminars and other capacity-building opportunities, the Global Network Foundation (GNF) will build the skills of promising leaders from Central Eurasia and raise awareness about these regions among Western leaders.GNF was established in 2002 by the Society of International Business Fellows (SIBF). Its mission is to facilitate global philanthropy in partnership with foundations, corporations and individuals by leveraging the expertise, relationships and resources of SIBF members toward further global understanding.
