The Global Access Pipeline (GAP) project is a consortium that provides a "pipeline" for the underrepresented to achieve leadership positions in international affairs across governmental, non-profit and private sectors in the United States. The GAP project links pre-collegiate programs for underrepresented and at-risk students with college- and graduate-level programs that are then tied to key mid-career leadership programs. These, in turn, become part of special recruitment efforts at prominent senior level institutions from which leadership cadres and policy advice are drawn.
