For A Brighter Tomorrow

At NSLI and NLRI we believe the world needs to equip its future leaders with the skills to succeed in complex circumstances, the ability to expand trust and opportunity, and the vision to serve as stewards of the planet.


The leaders of the future will:

  • Collaborate with others, including those with different backgrounds and expertise.

  • Create expansive networks for professional development and amplified impacts.

  • Understand drivers of change across inter-related topics: the global expansion of data, information and automation; natural resource constraints; human health science and strategies; the need to balance interests in national, regional and global policy contexts.


We research emerging leadership models and best practices in leadership education to design our intentional, multi-faceted training and education program. Our Nordic-inspired leadership development program design builds on past experiences of educational exchange, policy engagement and innovation ecosystem development.

Together, our regions hold enormous potential for positive global leadership.

NLRI conducts research on best practices in leadership education. We  aim to build a new pathway to nurture leaders by training American Scholars in the Nordics. The Nordic countries have spent the last century investing and experimenting to answer some of the toughest leadership and sustainability questions. The results of Nordic efforts are there for all to see-  as global leaders in both innovation and sustainability.



To Tackle Global Challenges

Nordic Scholars Leadership Institute is a US non-profit organization engaged in the research and design of leadership training programs in the
Nordics, to equip the next generation of leaders with the tools to solve the complex global challenges of tomorrow. 


Tomorrow's Leaders

We research and design programs to educate a target audience of US college graduates who are called to service and leadership. Willing to think outside the box, looking for innovation, inspired to solve global challenges--you are the future.
