Global Scholars 3-Year BA Program Special Opportunities

Global Scholar Abroad

Students enrolled in the Global Scholars Program have unique academic and co-curricular activities during the academic year and the summer semesters:

  • The Global Scholars faculty director works with students to assist with career planning and applications for internships and external research awards.
  • Global Scholars students live in a living learning community that offers special programming throughout the academic year, including community meetings with guest speakers working in international affairs, professional development activities, and other events designed to introduce new students to DC.
  • Global Scholars students can apply financial aid, including scholarships, toward expenses associated with summer study abroad and/or summer classes (taken online or on campus).
  • Students may study abroad between the summer of their first and second year and/or during the second or third academic year. Students can take advantage of the Madrid Brussels summer study abroad program crafted specifically for the Global Scholars Program, or they can choose any study abroad program offered through AU Abroad or SIS.
