The American Center at U.S. Embassy Dhaka is pleased to announce the Global UGRAD Exchange Program. It is a semester long, non-degree undergraduate exchange program sponsored by the U.S. Department of State’s Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs.
Global UGRAD is an intensive academic program with a purpose to provide undergraduate student leaders with in-depth exposure to U.S. society, culture, and academic institutions by engaging in substantive academic exchanges at colleges and universities across America. This program will provide full scholarships to outstanding students from countries – including Bangladesh – for one semester of non-degree undergraduate study at accredited U.S. institutions for a semester in fall 2019. Priority will be given to underrepresented and underserved applicants. All academic fields of study are eligible. Scholarships will be awarded for one semester (approximately 4 months) depending upon the applicant’s interests and availability, as well as placement options and availability of funds.
Global UGRAD participants will be enrolled full-time in undergraduate course work chosen from a host institution’s existing curriculum to allow students ample opportunity for substantive interaction with U.S. faculty and students and exposure to U.S. academic and classroom culture. In addition, to help ensure students are successful in their new academic environments, host institutions will offer tailored instruction on topics including academic research and writing, critical thinking, time management, note-taking, and studying for and taking tests. Participants will live on campus with American peers.
Participation in community service activities is mandatory. Additionally, an internship component will be offered for all participants during the academic component of the program. Internships will be related to the participant’s field of study and/or career plans.
Scholarships will be granted primarily to students who are currently enrolled in an undergraduate degree program in their home country.
Candidates should be highly motivated non-elite or underprivileged undergraduate students from colleges, universities, and other institutions of higher education who demonstrate leadership through academic work, community involvement, and extracurricular activities. All candidates should know and speak English well. Applicants should have little or no prior experience in the United States or other foreign countries.
