The UW Global Gateway Initiative makes study abroad accessible to students with demonstrated financial need through two different avenues: Summer programs and Fellowships. All students participate in pre- and post-program engagements and onsite activities to integrate their time abroad with academics and professional development. We strive to embody the Wisconsin Idea by encouraging students to share their experiences and knowledge gained abroad to positively impact the UW-Madison community, Wisconsin, and beyond.
UW GLOBAL GATEWAY FELLOWSHIPS
The UW Global Gateway Fellowships are designed to provide students the access to the UW-Madison approved semester or year-long study abroad program of their choice, as well as the semester-long domestic study away program, UW Wisconsin in Washington, DC Internship Program, which best meets their academic and professional goals. Each participant receives a $10,000 fellowship towards their program costs.
Spring 2021 (coming soon!)
UW GLOBAL GATEWAY SUMMER PROGRAMS
The UW Global Gateway Summer Programs are highly-structured, thematic four-week study abroad programs specially designed to introduce first and second year students from diverse backgrounds and academic fields to international and global issues. Each program provides a full scholarship, including airfare, for 15 students with demonstrated financial need (preference give to students with EFC under $12,000) to study in non-traditional locations.
On these programs, a UW-Madison faculty member will direct a group of Badgers to a different location around the globe to introduce students to issues of global importance and prepare students for success in an increasingly interconnected world. These programs use the host country as a classroom and are experiential and interdisciplinary. Locations, themes, courses, and faculty will vary from program to program. Students earn 5 in-residence credits upon completion of their program.
