Global Scholars Program

The FSU Global Scholars program helps students secure summer internships at nonprofit organizations in the Global South (Asia, Africa, Latin America). Currently in its ninth year, this program was developed by the Center for Undergraduate Research and Academic Engagement and provides students with a challenging academic and personal student development experience that is both low-cost and high-impact. Global Scholars receive training before departure, complete a class-based research project during their internships, and connect their experience abroad back to the Tallahassee community in the form of a capstone project upon their return. The Global Scholars program was designed to cultivate active citizens of the world who can utilize research and critical thinking skills to engage with different cultural perspectives and make a positive impact in the global community.
