Global Scholars

Global Scholars teaches students to explore the ethical and political complexities of attempting to ‘do good’ or ‘help others’ while crossing significant differences of culture and power. 

They participate in an international summer internship after taking a prepatory course to discover their subject and identify the reasearch location, then return to campus in the fall to complete their Capstone Project.

Students are taught to use a wide range of resources for identifying opportunities for independent global learning experiences. Throughout the summer, Global Scholars pursue their independent global learning experiences, and begin working on their digital storytelling projects as a way to document their ongoing observations and reflections.Through an ongoing process of workshopping and peer-review, students build their Capstone Projects and prepare for their final public presentations at the Global Scholars Showcase, where they share their work with a broader audience.

Your donation helps cover the cost for our students to participate in this life-changing experience, no matter their socio-economic background.
