Global Perspective

Global Perspective is an opportunity for rising third- and fourth-year scholars to design a global summer experience of their choice, combining modes of learning such as research, self-study, service, internship, shadowing, or purposeful travel. Scholars can also apply for summer study abroad programs in conjunction with their self-designed global projects.

In 2021–2022, 101 scholars spent their Global Perspective summers in seven geographical regions, 44 countries, and 15 U.S. states and territories.
