Global Scholars 3-Year BA Program Admissions Process

All students interested in joining the Global Scholars Program should apply to American University/School of International Service, adhering to all application deadlines and requirements. In addition to the application, Global Scholar applicants must submit an essay as a part of their AU application outlining their interest in the Program. Visit the Global Scholars Application page to find out more.

As a junior or senior in high school, students may also want to consider the Community of Scholars program in SIS, a rigorous three-credit college summer program. Visit the Community of Scholars page to find out more.

Current AU/SIS students are not eligible to apply for admission into the Global Scholars Program, as the Program is designed for incoming freshmen.

For more information, please email globalscholars@american.edu.
