  • How to Apply & Deadlines
  • Academics
  • How Financial Aid Works
  • Scholarships
  • Student Identity
  • Resources
  • Next Steps

Explore Programs

With hundreds of unique global learning programs to choose from, we encourage you to consider your personal, academic, and professional priorities when selecting a program. You can review our many program types on our Programs page to help narrow down your options. Our advisors are happy to help you review programs to find the right fit for you. To schedule an appointment to meet with an advisor, review our Advising page.


Research Funding Opportunities

There are many opportunities to fund your global learning program, including financial aid and scholarships. If you receive financial aid, you can request an estimate for a financial aid package for a program. We also strongly encourage you to identify scholarships you’re eligible for, such as UCEAP scholarships and the Gilman International Scholarship for Pell Grant recipients, among many other scholarships that we recommend.
