Transparency International School on Integrity in Vilnius. Deadline for applications May 1 2014.
Transparency International School on Integrity in Vilnius is state-of-the-art anti-corruption and accountability training for future leaders. The School exposes its participants to the latest developments in the field of anti-corruption and accountability and offers real opportunities to try and implement their ideas in practice.
Following a rigorous selection process, selected students spend 7 highly intensive days learning from leading anti-corruption and accountability professionals. The School seeks to create a peer-to-peer learning and integrity-building environment that links theory with practice and helps young leaders to acquire better skills in bring the anti-corruption message across.
School lectures, seminars, training and field trips provide School participants with a unique blend of international and local know-how, while also challenging the students to approach the subject from outside the box and offer novel, previously untested solutions. Since 2010, TI School has welcomed over 350 youth leaders from some 60 countries worldwide. See our Alumni network here. Is this School for you?
This one is easy. TI School is for senior students, graduates and young professionals eager to learn how to make a stand against corruption and to achieve greater transparency in their country. The School seven-day format offers a powerful mix of an intensive academic schedule, unconference-like atmosphere and continuous peer-to-peer interactions which all makes it into an unforgettable one-week-long adventure.
The School usually hosts an equal share of participants from private and public sectors, NGOs and academia from Europe, Asia, Africa and the Americas. Such diversity in background and experience further strengthen our applied approach to anti-corruption and transparency. So, the students not only learn about the causes of corruption but also spend a larger part of their time learning practical ways in which societies can become more transparent and accountable.
From 2012, TI School on Integrity together with the International Anti-Corruption Conference (IACC) and the Ashoka Foundation offers a competitive grants scheme for TI School alumni. Learn more about this Social Entrepreneurs Initiative.
In July 2014, once again we expect to welcome some 140 future leaders from more than 60 countries for a seven day event in the beautiful Lithuanian capital Vilnius. The number of places and scholarships is limited, so we encourage you to apply prepared and well in advance.
