Global Scholar is an intensive two-week academic enrichment program that cultivates young global leaders who both understand global challenges and have the skills to build a more peaceful, healthy, just and sustainable world. Program highlights include:

  • seminars with policy experts on key global challenges like security, climate change, and the rights of women and girls
  • visits to embassies, Capitol Hill, think tanks and other D.C. institutions
  • workshops on leadership, communications, advocacy and policymaking
  • a campaign competition and a G8 policy simulation
  • and of course, exploring beautiful Washington D.C. in the summertime! We visit the Kennedy Center, the Smithsonian museums and even go to a Nationals game!

Global Scholar is the only summer program on global issues that offers a robust mix of both seminars and skillbuilding; we believe that students shouldn’t just get informed, they should get activated to build a better world. Find out more online at:
