Global Undergraduate Exchange Program (UGRAD) 2019-2020
The Global Undergraduate Exchange Program (Global UGRAD), sponsored by the U.S. Department of State’s Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs, is supported by the people of the United States. This international educational and cultural exchange program brings future leaders to the United States to experience the U.S. educational system, enhance their knowledge and skills, and explore U.S. culture and values. It also affords students the opportunity to educate Americans about other cultures and traditions. The Global Undergraduate Exchange Program is administered through the joint efforts of the U.S. Department of State’s Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs, U.S. Embassies abroad and World Learning.
The Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs strives to ensure that its efforts reflect the diversity of U.S. society and societies abroad. The Bureau seeks and encourages the involvement of people from traditionally underrepresented audiences in all its grants, programs, and other activities and in its workforce and workplace. Opportunities are open to people regardless of their race, color, national origin, sex, age, religion, geographic location, socioeconomic status, disability, sexual orientation or gender identity. The Bureau is committed to fairness, equity and inclusion.
The U.S. Department of State and World Learning are pleased to announce the open competition for the Global UGRAD Program for undergraduate students for the 2019-2020 academic year. Participants will be selected for academic excellence, leadership potential, community involvement, fluency in written and spoken English, motivation and flexibility to be an exchange student.
The Global UGRAD scholarship provides one academic semester of undergraduate, non-degree study in the United States in all fields. Interested applicants in medicine, nursing, veterinary medicine, pharmacology or other clinical fields of study, should be aware that direct patient care, including animal care, is not permitted, and therefore academic coursework and/or program activities at participating U.S. institutions may be limited. Participants will study at accredited four-year U.S. institutions of higher education, receive intensive English instruction if needed, and engage in community service, professional development workshops, and cultural enrichment activities. Global UGRAD participants will live on-campus with U.S. peers.
Candidates should be highly motivated and demonstrate leadership through academic work, community involvement, and extracurricular activities.
In addition to coursework in their fields of study, U.S. studies, and electives, Global UGRAD finalists will engage in several non-academic activities including:
- Pre-Departure Orientation: all Global UGRAD finalists must attend a pre-departure orientation (PDO) prior departure to the United States.
- Community Service:Global UGRAD finalists engage with their U.S. communities through the completion of required community service.
- Re-entry Workshop: During the program, Global UGRAD finalists will attend a leadership and career development workshop in Washington, DC.
