OUR SERVICES AND IMPACT
What we do & how we started
We started as a grassroots movement helping underrepresented students in America overcome the hurdles of obtaining their graduate degree.
Over the years, the students we serve has expanded. We have watched our students develop in their purpose, in their careers, and in their spiritual lives. We are grateful to witness it all over the past twenty years.
And now, here we are, ready for the next chapter in this adventure. We hope you will join us as this story continues to unfold.
Our story is still being written.
The Global Graduate Fellows Program (GradPrep) is a faith-based student incubator for thought, vision, and experience.
We offer workshops, internships, and global immersion trips to transition you in school and your career.

My name is Elise Hicks, 24.
I am a graduate of Liberty University (’20) with a degree in Family and Child Development, with minors in psychology and sociology.
In addition, I have extensive experience working with trauma, crisis care, and counseling.
Since my first mission trip to Honduras in 2015, God placed a desire in my heart to do orphan care! We served at a boy’s home that did not have parents to raise these young gentlemen… this broke my heart.
In a matter of days, I decided that I wanted to fix that problem to be a house mom for those precious boys! Attending LU was a way to learn practical information, tangible skills, and to gain resources to achieve that goal. The home actually closed while I was in the middle of my degree, but God had not led me astray!
There is another international organization I work with now that has family style children’s homes the exact format I wanted to create. Currently, I am a volunteer who helps with summer missions teams, teaches English, gives site wide
emotional/behavioral support, and develops age appropriate Bible curriculum for the kids.
This life is not what I imagined; it is so much better.
God is good.
Thank you GradPrep for helping me reach this goal!
