Global Scholars, a new initiative administered by the Global Studies program, takes an interdisciplinary approach to exploring critical global trends and issues. Through their participation in this multi-year program, the Global Scholars will be mentored and challenged to engage with new concepts and generate innovative questions as they enter and examine the complexities of the always evolving and interconnected world.

Applications for Class of 2027 Scholars open on January 15, 2024!

The Global Scholars will be encouraged to tackle urgent issues and rethink conventional paradigms. The initiative follows a process-based approach by supporting the Global Scholars in the development of their own thinking and understanding of global processes and systems. By promoting multi-faceted awareness through the task of analyzing and appreciating diverse perspectives and experiences, the Global Scholars will be better equipped to navigate societies, work in cultures and listen to and understand people from different backgrounds with humility and confidence.
