Global UGRAD

The 2020-2021 Global Undergraduate Exchange Program (Global
UGRAD) is open now!                                 
Deadline December 31, 5:00pm EST.
The Global Undergraduate Exchange Program (Global UGRAD) is
sponsored by the U.S. Department of State’s Bureau of Educational and
Cultural Affairs.  It is a fully-funded scholarship for one semester of non-
degree academic study at an assigned U.S. college or university.
Participants are emerging leaders committed to their home communities. 
During the Program, Global UGRAD participants challenge themselves to explore U.S. society, culture, and academic learning.  They also participate in community service and enhance their professional skills. All participants
will be enrolled in full-time, non-degree, undergraduate course work chosen from their host institution’s existing curriculum. Participants will be required to take one, 3-credit U.S. studies course to enhance their understanding of the United States. Participants will live in campus housing facilities with American peers, and will be required to participate in twenty hours of community service. There will also be a virtual arrival orientation and an in-person end-of-program workshop.  Undergraduate students from all fields of study are encouraged to apply.
