Summer Immersion Programs
Global Scholars offers immersive experience volunteering and/or researching in a public service capacity in a developing country. Working for a minimum of 2 months, students will address direct human needs through roles in education, youth development, social care, healthcare, or other related projects. We’re looking for students who embrace challenge, who are open to new experiences and personal growth, who want to get out and explore a different culture and way of life, and who are eager to work to help others.
FSU Global Scholars partners with the organizations Omprakash and ProWorld Volunteers to facilitate these international placements.

Apply for a Global Scholars Travel Award 2013
PURPOSE: The Global Scholars Travel Award is a need-based stipend designed to help students participate in FSU’s Global Scholars program who may not otherwise be able to take part due to financial obstacles. The Global Scholars program aims to dramatically increase the number of FSU students who volunteer, intern, and conduct research in the developing world. The program offers unique experiences that challenge students through immersive service opportunities in developing communities, and it offers pre- and post-program activities that are designed to maximize the students’ field work engagement. In the end, the Global Scholars Program hopes to cultivate active citizens of the world who can engage with different cultural perspectives, lead fulfilled lives, and make a positive difference for others.
AWARD DESCRIPTION: Selected recipients will receive a stipend of up to $2000 to cover expenses associated with participating in FSU’s Global Scholars Program. Funds may be used for general program costs, living expenses, and/or travel.
