This is a university-wide program that annually awards up to two $6,250 fellowships for undergraduate student involvement in non-traditional global study and experience. These fellowship awards are intended to support compelling, unique, and potentially transformative experiences outside of the United States, preferably involving business or other organizations. There is a strong preference for destinations in the developing and emerging regions of the world. These fellowships are not intended to support internships for academic credit or Villanova sponsored mission or service trips.
To qualify for one of these fellowships, students must be nominated by a departmental chairperson or center director. For more information contact Associate Dean of Undergraduate Business Programs, Melinda German.
