Latin American Program Gala: Celebrating 40 Years of Engaging the Hemisphere

Since 1998, the Wilson Center has recognized exemplary individuals with the Woodrow Wilson Awards. At dinner ceremonies held in cities across the United States and abroad, the Wilson Center honors those who through thoughtful discussion, generous philanthropy, and selfless service have made the world a better place for all.

Following this tradition, the Wilson Center will celebrate the Latin American Program's 40th anniversary honoring distinguished individuals and their work within the region.

Founded in 1977, the Latin American Program is dedicated to bridging the gap between scholarship and public policy. The Program provides non-partisan expertise to a broad community of decision makers in the United States and Latin America concerning critical policy issues facing the Hemisphere. For decades it has forged strong relationships with institutions, companies, and individuals throughout the Americas in order to deepen mutual understanding and improve policy outcomes. 

Created in 2006, the Brazil Institute seeks to foster dialogue on key issues of bilateral concern between Brazil and the United States, while advancing Washington’s understanding of the complexities of Brazil as a regional democratic power and a global player.

The Wilson Center’s prestigious Latin American Program provides non-partisan expertise to a broad community of decision makers in the United States and Latin America on critical policy issues facing the Hemisphere. The Program provides insightful and actionable research for policymakers, private sector leaders, journalists, and public intellectuals in the United States and Latin America. To bridge the gap between scholarship and policy action, it fosters new inquiry, sponsors high-level public and private meetings among multiple stakeholders, and explores policy options to improve outcomes for citizens throughout the Americas. Drawing on the Wilson Center’s strength as the nation’s key non-partisan forum, the Program serves as a trusted source of analysis and a vital point of contact between the worlds of scholarship and action.  Read more
