Program Description:
The Global Citizen Award is a highly competitive scholarship focused on student research and cultural immersion.

Georgia College undergraduate students who have submitted a complete application for a study abroad program may apply for the Global Citizen Award.  Consideration will be given to the student’s academic record, proposed course of study abroad, the program’s cross-cultural component, essays, research project presentation proposal, letter of recommendation, and interview.  Awarded students are expected to present their research project at the annual GC Undergraduate Research Symposium.

Students who are not planning to do research as part of their study abroad or intern abroad experience should apply for the GC Study Abroad Scholarship instead.

Up to one student will be selected each term for the Global Citizens Award and will be recognized with a scholarship of up to $5000 for semester or academic year programs or up to $2500 for short-term programs abroad. Additionally, the recipient will be expected to propose a presentation at the Georgia College Research Conference. The selection committee reserves the right to make no award in the event that no outstanding application is submitted.

Students selected for the Global Citizens Award will not be awarded a second scholarship; students who apply but are not selected for the Global Citizens Award will be considered for the additional scholarship resources by default, and no additional application is necessary.  Students applying for the Global Citizens Award should not also complete a separate GC Study Abroad Scholarship application.
