Ricardo Salinas Foundation Scholarship

The Ricardo Salinas Foundation Scholarship Fund aims to increase the participation of Latinos and Latin Americans in the Aspen Institute’s public events, policy roundtables, leadership seminars and other convenings. It will expand the horizons and impact of the recipients, and will also enrich the experience for all participants and programs at the Aspen Institute, who will benefit from Salinas Scholars’ ideas and perspectives.
