Haverford Student Selected for a National Award By the Goldman Sachs Foundation
In keeping with The Goldman Sachs Foundation's commitment to developing young leaders for the new century, the Goldman Sachs Global Leaders Program invests in the preparation of talented students for distinctive service to society and their future professions. The Institute of International Education (IIE), in partnership with educational organizations in selected countries, conducts an annual competition on 54 of the world's finest college campuses to identify 100 of the most accomplished second-year students for the Goldman Sachs Global Leaders Program. During a public ceremony in New York in mid-April, the Foundation awarded 20 of these exceptionally talented and bright students from U.S. schools with the distinction of being "Goldman Sachs Global Leaders" and an award of $2,000. Vincent also was one of only ten U.S. students and 40 other students selected internationally for "top honors." These 50 outstanding students will have the opportunity to participate in the Goldman Sachs Global Leaders Institute in late July in New York City and will receive an additional $3,000 and a laptop computer with Internet access. The Goldman Sachs Global Leaders Institute offers this select group of students from around the world an opportunity to examine collaboratively important issues such as global leadership, the new world economy, e-commerce and international development. Challenging and thought-provoking seminars will be led by world-renowned faculty from leading U.S. business schools and by experienced senior Goldman Sachs executives. Additional activities for participants will include cultural events and a tour of New York City, including sites such as the United Nations and the New York Stock Exchange. "The Goldman Sachs Global Leaders Program invests in the preparation of talented students for distinctive service to society and their future professions and reflects the Foundation's mission, 'to identify and promote innovation and excellence in education worldwide,'" says Stephanie Bell-Rose, President, The Goldman Sachs Foundation. She continues, "The Goldman Sachs Global Leaders Program will leave a lasting, positive impact on young people around the world at an important time of their lives."
