The 2018-2019 Global Undergraduate Exchange Program (Global UGRAD)
The Global Undergraduate Exchange Program (Global UGRAD) is sponsored by the U.S. Department of State’s Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs. 

It is a fully-funded scholarship for one semester of non-degree academic study at an assigned U.S. college or university. Participants are emerging leaders committed to their home communities.  During the Program, Global UGRAD participants challenge themselves to explore U.S. society, culture, and academic learning.  They also participate in community service and enhance their professional skills.

The application for participation in the 2018-2019 academic cycle will be open November 1 and will close on December 31, 5:00pm EST. For application information and instructions, please visit
