The Global UGRAD Program is a U.S. Department of State sponsored initiative that grants scholarships to undergraduate level students from over 60 countries. Students are placed at colleges and universities across the United States where they participate in one semester of undergraduate, non-degree study. Global UGRAD is administered by World Learning. The scholarship will cover international travel, tuition, room and board, accident/sickness insurance, a small monthly stipend, and funding for books. Global UGRAD is a substantive exchange program designed to expose students to the U.S. educational system, society, and culture. Students will live in university residence halls and will have the opportunity to participate in campus organizations and activities. Students leave the U.S. with the tools to become leaders in their professions and to promote mutual understanding between themselves and the people of the United States.
