GEF

The Global Engagement Fellowship Program

The GEF program is for students who are interested in pursuing international involvement in their future careers. Students in this program take a class about Global Community, learn a foreign language, are members of at least one (probably more) international organization on campus, and they receive scholarships to study abroad twice in their college careers. Generally, students study abroad for a semester and then also for a short term program, but it’s up to the student and the discretion of the program coordinator, Bushra Asif, how they choose to organize their international experiences.

Students also maintain a blog in which they share their progress in becoming better global citizens and their experiences while living and studying abroad.

I am a member of the GEF Class of 2021.
