This is a time like no other.

This year has been historic, with the challenges presented by COVID-19 and the incredibly fractious US elections. These issues rest on long-standing and widening structural challenges, from inequality to systemic racism. While this moment can feel overwhelming, it’s absolutely a call to action. It is imperative for you to learn what’s happening, deepen your skills to lead and engage others, and get involved in your community and our world. It’s up to us to pursue, design and demand our shared future.

Global Scholar is here for you.

We know it’s been a tough year. And while none of us know what the summer will look like, the Global Scholar team is committed to supporting your change making however works best for you. This summer, Global Scholars have the option to join an all-virtual program, or a blended virtual-in person program. You can shift your registration between the two experiences at any time this spring, too.

Pay what you can.

We also know this has been an incredibly difficult year for many families financially. As a non-profit organization, our goal is to reach as many youth as possible with this life-changing experience. Our “pay what you can” model suggests a program rate based on your income, with an aggressive commitment to ensuring that as many Scholars as possible are able to participate regardless of their ability to pay for this experience.

After attending Global Scholar, I now feel better prepared to make a positive impact on not only my community but the world. Global Scholar was a really wonderful program that opened my eyes to different ways to make change and think about the systems that make up our world.

It’s such a great experience. If you are or are not into international affairs, you will go back home with such confidence, with all the knowledge you had acquired through this intense program. It will build your confidence in so many ways, such as public speaking, being inclusive, teamwork, support and so much!
