2012-2013 Philippine Global Undergraduate Exchange Program


The objective of the Global Undergraduate Exchange Program is to provide a large and diverse group of student leaders with in-depth exposure to US society, culture and academic institutions by engaging in substantive academic exchanges at colleges and universities in the United States.
The Global Undergraduate Exchange Program will provide one-semester or one academic year scholarships to outstanding college students from non-elite, underrepresented sectors in society. Scholars will be enrolled full-time in undergraduate course work chosen from the US host institution’s existing curriculum to allow for ample opportunity for on-going interaction with US faculty and student peers, and for exposure to US academic and classroom culture. Successful candidates will begin their program in Fall 2012 or Spring 2013.
