Looking for an enriching undergraduate experience in an American college or university?

Beginning in FY2015, Global UGRAD Program will provide one-semester scholarships for non-degree, full-time study in the United States. This program is funded by U.S. Department of State. Students will study at accredited two and four year U.S. institutions of higher education, engage in community service, professional development workshops and cultural enrichment activities.

The Objective

The goal of the program is to provide a diverse group of emerging student leaders, from non-elite and under-represented groups with a substantive exchange experience at a U.S. College or University. Successful applicants can expect an in-depth exposure to U.S. society, culture and academic institutions by engaging in academic exchanges at colleges and universities across the country.

Global UGRAD program participants will be enrolled full-time in undergraduate course work chosen at the host institutions to allow ample opportunity for interaction with U.S. faculty and student peers, and for exposure to U.S. academic and classroom culture. Host institution will offer instruction on topics including academic research and critical thinking, time management, note-taking and studying for and taking tests. Participants will live on-campus with U.S. peers or homestays with American families.
Students will not be able to select their own placement. They will be assigned to the most appropriate host institution based on students’ academic interests. This is a non-degree program and so it is the students’ responsibility to check with their home institutions whether any credits accumulated during the exchange program will be transferred.

Students will be required to participate in a minimum of twenty hours of community service activities per semester. Students will also be required to enroll in at least one course in a U.S. studies field, such as U.S. history, literature, art or government.

All academic fields of study are eligible. However, per J-1 visa regulations, applicants from the fields of medicine, nursing, veterinary medicine, pharmacology, or other clinical fields of study, that direct patient care, including animal care, is not permitted and therefore academic course and/or program activities (e.g. internships) at participating host institutions may be limited.

All participants will need a good knowledge of English and have certification of their English ability to be admitted by a U.S. host institution. The preferred Toefl iBt score is 61. Please submit your Toefl score if available, otherwise MACEE will arrange for Toefl test for the nominated candidates after the interview.

The Global UGRAD Program requires that participants return to his/her home country at the conclusion of the U.S. Program to complete his/her undergraduate degree.
Failure to meet the academic requirements of the university and UGRAD program of study (poor grades or failure to submit assignments or attend class) may result in dismissal from the Global UGRAD Program. Participants must remain in good academic standing with a minimum 2.0 GPA


Scholarships will be granted to students who are currently enrolled in an undergraduate degree program locally and who will have completed their first year of undergraduate study prior to starting their UGRAD Program. In addition, selected participants must be at least 18 years of age when they arrive in the U.S. They must also have at least one semester or an equivalent term to complete at their home institutions upon completion of their UGRAD Program. The UGRAD semester or academic year cannot be the last academic term of a student’s undergraduate study.
