Global Scholars

A service project in Belize or global project with a German team would grab a potential employer's attention.

Nearly every employer today is looking for people who can work and communicate effectively in a diverse environment. They are looking for people who show initiative and leadership skills. Participation in a study abroad program can demonstrate all of these skills to a potential employer.

Built around Gateway’s academic programs Global Scholar study abroad opportunities are typically two to three weeks in length and are planned around breaks to work with student schedules. They typically cost less than $4,500. Gateway also works with students to help cover program costs – up to 50% in scholarships, financial aid eligibility and additional fundraising opportunities.

Applications are typically taken from January – March for travel the following year.
