Global Learning Student Fellowship

The Office of Global Learning Initiatives (OGLI) invites you to apply for an FIU Global Learning Fellowship. This fellowship is designed to provide undergraduate students with the resources needed to conduct research and innovative projects that increase students’ global awareness, global perspective, and global engagement. In addition to financial support, the OGLI will provide mentoring opportunities throughout the duration of the student’s project. The fellowship consists of two different tracks: Research Track and Engagement/Action Track. Students can only apply to one of the fellowship tracks.

  • Research Track: Student designs and conducts a research project with the guidance of a faculty mentor. OGLI can assist in identifying a faculty mentor if student does not have one at the time of application.
  • Engagement/Action Track: Student devises and implements an innovative global learning project. OGLI can assist in identifying an advisor if student does not have one at the time of application.
