The Global Graduate
Fellows Program

THE GLOBAL GRADUATE FELLOWS PROGRAM

The Global Graduate Fellows Program (GradPrep) is an international program that prepares its membership base for the global community.

Periodically, members can travel abroad and gain international experience.

The trip includes some or all of the following: cultural activities, internships, service components, and basic foreign language classes overseas. This fortifies our members’ on-going pursuit of knowledge, as well as strengthen leadership, service, and global awareness acumen.

PEOPLE

We use the selectivity model called “The 3 C’s” – Capability, Collaboration, and Character.

Our Global Graduate Fellows exemplify these attributes in their service regionally, nationally, and globally.

“I have gained a unique experience by being in Mexico, so I can share my experience and perspective with students in graduate school. As a result, it will make classroom discussions more diverse with fellow students. It will also allow me to understand other students who originate from the region.”
