The GLO programs are online-based, educational training programs for high school students who dream becoming leaders in the international community. Through these programs, students will be exposed to the major agendas in the global community and the ways in which international leaders work to resolve various problems. These programs aim to cultivate the minds of those future leaders through participation-based learning.

The Global Leadership: Online Semester (GLOS) program is offered in the Fall and Spring and consists of 12 virtual meetings hosted once per week. The weekly meeting duration is 2.5 hours.

The Global Leadership: Online Intensive (GLOI) program is offered in the Summer. GLOI is a 4-week program consisting of 3 virtual meetings per week. Each meeting is 2.5 hours.

The World Federation of United Nations Association (WFUNA) connects the UN member countries with their citizens through education and training to promote global citizenship. WFUNA is a global non-profit organization run by the UN that aims to promote student engagement in international relations. FIET partners with WFUNA to provide our UN training program.

The Foundation for International Education and Training (FIET), a 501(c)3 non-profit educational organization, has joined with Stanley Prep to offer this training program. FIET works with WFUNA to provide the program’s exclusive content. Additionally, FIET provides program scholarships to the most qualified applicants.

Stanley Prep has a wealth of experience in international recruitment and program admission. For this reason, FIET has delegated the management of the admissions process to Stanley Prep. Stanley Prep reviews application materials, conducts interviews, and determines the program participants.

The first notable difference is that the Global Leadership: Online programs are conducted entirely on the internet! This allows students from all over the world to get access to exclusive program content. The GLI program is a bi-coastal in-person program in which students are hosted in both New York and California. Another notable difference is the duration and structure of the programs. GLO programs are centered around the United Nations and take place over the course of 12 weeks throughout the semester (GLOS) or 4 weeks during the summer (GLOI). GLI is a 3-week intensive program in which students are hosted at the United Nations for one week and then spend two weeks participating in an internship in Los Angeles, California.

Individuals interested in applying for GLO programs may do so by submitting an application on the Stanley Prep website before the published deadline. Applicants will be expected to upload their transcripts and SAT results.

FIET provides scholarships to the most qualified applicants during every admissions period. The number of scholarships available varies per semester. Applicants may choose to apply for the scholarship at the time of submitting the standard program application. The scholarship application requires students to submit a 500-word essay detailing how they hope to contribute to their country and community, as well as a 250-word essay describing their financial need for the scholarship.

Due to the remote nature of the program, no U.S. visa is required to participate! In the event that a student would like to participate in the GLI Culmination program, however, a short-term U.S. visa may be necessary for overseas students. Please refer to for more information on this process.

These programs consist of the same content and activities. The only difference is the program duration. If you are looking to participate in the program over the course of 12 weeks during your academic year, the GLOS program is for you! If you are interested in participating for 4 weeks during the summer, the GLOI program is for you! GLOS and GLOI participants will have access to the same exclusive content, but are free to choose the program and session that will work best with their personal schedules! Please visit for more information about GLOS and GLOI.
