Support Us


At the Cisneros Hispanic Leadership Institute, our mission is to empower the next generation of leaders in service of the Latino/Hispanic community through academic programming, innovative research, and culturally competent support. We believe in the transformative power of education and the impact it can have on the lives of our scholars. But we can't do it alone; we need your support to make a real difference. 

Each gift, no matter how large or small, makes a positive impact on the lives of students and goes to support the Latino/Hispanic community on and off campus.

"The Cisneros Institute has been there for me since high school, guiding me through its pre-college program, Caminos al Futuro, and now as a Cisneros Scholar at GW. My growth as a professional, the discovery of my passion for human rights advocacy, studying abroad, and countless other experiences can be attributed to the unwavering support of the Cisneros Institute."
