Global Scholar Program

What is a Global Scholar? Global Scholars are students recognized by the university for their involvement in globally-focused instruction (global courses) and experiences (like travel and events). These students receive distinction and recognition at graduation in addition to being eligible for a pool of money dedicated to international or domestic academic travel each year.

Promotion and advertising of the Global Scholars Program began in 2014 through the Freshman Seminar courses. The first Global Scholars were selected in Fall 2016 and, since there, 112 high caliber students have been recognized and have received more than $120,000 in funding to travel with the university.
