Mexico Institute, 10/3/12
The fellowship has been endowed by the Hart family to honor Gus Hart, distinguished cofounder of the Inter-American Foundation, whose lifelong interest in the Latin American and Caribbean region and long service to The Chicago Council served as an inspiration for many in Chicago.
The 2013 Gus Hart Visiting Fellowship will be awarded to an emerging leader from Mexico working in the business, governmental, social, or cultural realm, who is making outstanding contributions to the advancement of Mexican society, and can deliver an articulate speech to an audience in English. The goals of the fellowship are: to recognize and reinforce the work of an emerging leader who has made a tangible contribution to his/her country; to connect this emerging leader with the resources and energy of Chicago so as to benefit his/her work; and to increase awareness of the Latin American and the Caribbean region in Chicago and deepen the city’s connections to the region.
