Global Scholars Program

 The Lewis Honors College and Gatton College’s Global Scholars Program are proud to introduce a formal partnership. This partnership helps to streamline the application process, recruitment initiatives, and curricular interests for students within Gatton College by allowing them to select a customized Global Scholars Program option, within the larger Honors context. In this way, students will still be fulfilling their Honors requirements, and with additional curricular requirements under the Global Scholars Program, will earn a Global Scholars designation on their transcript.

The Lewis Honors College and the Global Scholars Program (GSP) strive to accommodate the needs of the students and help them reach their fullest potential in a convenient and seamless way. The primary goal of this partnership is to continue to serve the best and brightest students across campus. Every Global Scholar (GS) will study abroad for at least one semester and complete a minor in international business. In this sense, the GSP is an academic program designed to enhance any Gatton major. That being said, we also consider the GSP to be a holistic educational program, one that will challenge the student both in and outside the classroom. To this end, the GSP provides several co-curricular requirements, such as professionalism events and community service projects.

 

Benefits

  • A holistic academic program with co-curricular components, specialized curriculum, professional and leadership development, and networking opportunities for students.
