We want every interested student to have the chance to experience one of our Global Services Programs.

In special comments, add in “student financial aid for global programs” so we can make sure to connect your contribution to the fund.

Student Reflections

“Prior to the London trip, I defined world citizen as someone who is familiar with other cultures, traditions, and beliefs other than their own. Following the trip, I define world citizen as someone who understands those same very things but whom also understands the interconnectedness of the world. In learning about other nations and cultures, it is very important to understand their unique challenges and examine international relations outside of the info that is provided in the U.S. A world citizen evaluates international relations from different cultural perspectives.”


“I initially thought that being a “world citizen” meant being aware of other cultures; however, after London, I see a world citizen is someone who not only is aware of other cultures and people of the world but who also seeks to understand and live with these people and cultures.”
