Program Implementation

All students in the second semester of their first year are invited to apply to the Global Scholars Leadership Program (GSLP). Applications will be due by March 1. Students will be notified of their status by April 1.

The IE Committee and Global Ambassadors review the applications and conduct virtual interviews for acceptance into the program. Once accepted into the GSLP, students enroll in one-credit of GLBL 100 in their first semester. Students complete an e-portfolio where they post all of their work related to the GSLP. Students complete an annual report summarizing their progress in the program.

Although the program is meant primarily for cohorts of sophomore students, if space is available, current students may apply for the GSLP no later than the first semester of their second year.

A stipend for study abroad is available after the student has completed at least two full semesters or one semester for students who transfer in 60 or more credit hours.

In order to receive a Global Scholars Leadership distinction on their transcript and diploma, students must meet all of the requirements by March 1 for spring graduation and October 1 for fall graduation.
