The NAE Grand Challenge Scholar Program requires students participate in a global experience to build the student’s perspective of these global issues.
As a requirement for their honors degree, students must:
Complete an approved international experience. In most cases, this is a study abroad experience, but international internships, and in some cases, coursework and accompanying project with intercultural content is acceptable. Because an international experience is a critical element of becoming a Grand Challenge Scholar, the student’s international experience plan must be a part of their GCSP plan of study and approved by the GCSP advisor. The GCSP advisor will not approve plans that do not involve international travel and engagement with a different culture.
