Global UGRAD

The Global Undergraduate Exchange Program invites students to apply to its exciting non-degree full-time study program. These programs are offered to roughly 2,000 global students. Participants will leave the United States with the skills necessary to become leaders in their professions and within their local communities. Graduates of this program have gone on to receive Fulbright grants, successful professional internships, and meaningful employment.

This program is offered to outstanding undergraduate students from anywhere in the world. The program incorporates full-time study with community service, professional development, and cultural enrichment. Students will leave the program with a strong understanding of how people of the United States interact with those from other countries. Students will explore the American educational system in detail, learning how their culture interacts with the culture of the United States. This program fosters a fulfilling exchange experience that influences academic and leadership abilities for students from Global UGRAD countries.

Students will also be given opportunities to network with other students and professionals in the United States. They will build academic knowledge and professional skills, along with a comprehensive knowledge of the United States.

The program is open to students of all countries, with the exception of the United States (this exception includes permanent residents or individuals currently studying, residing, or working outside of their home countries).
