Global Scholars Program
What is the Global Scholars Program?
The Global Scholars Program (GSP) is a special program for incoming international students who have demonstrated outstanding leadership in their home communities before attending Clark. Global scholars receive guidance and opportunities to build on their leadership skills so they can make a difference at Clark, in the Worcester area, and in the global community. Global Scholars are paired with an administrator, peer, or alumni mentor who assist them throughout their time at Clark. GSP participants receive a minimum of a $60,000 four-year scholarship ($15,000 per year) and are eligible to receive a $2,500 taxable internship fellowship.
What are the Global Scholars Doing?
Each semester the Global Scholars present an academic panel regarding an issue of global significance. Some topics covered have been human trafficking, illegal arms trade, HIV/AIDS, and gang violence.
Each year Global Scholars are required to complete 5 hours of community service. Recently GSP participants have visited a Girl Scout Troop, volunteered at the Boys and Girls Club, visited a nursing home, and participated in Just Do It Day.
