Global Fellows

A fully-funded, interdisciplinary international experience

Added as a dimension of the first-year program at the university, The Global Fellows Program aims to open substantive dialogue on issues of sustainability and geopolitics from a global perspective.

Global Fellows are selected in a competitive essay contest during their first year at BVU. During January interim of their second year, Global Fellows participate in a fully-funded, academically-oriented, interdisciplinary international experience.

During their junior and senior years, Global Fellows give back to the university as global ambassadors with a Scholar’s Day presentation and as student mentors for the first year program.
