Global Service Scholars Program
Join the Blum/Living Peace Global Service Scholars Program
“You cannot get through a single day without having an impact on the world around you. What you do makes a difference, and you have to decide what kind of difference you want to make.”
Do you want to make a difference in the world?
Do you feel an obligation to do good?
What does the world really need from you?
What do you want from yourself?
The Global Service Scholars Program seeks to help students answer these questions for themselves. The program gives priority to students in the School of Social Ecology, but all UCI undergraduates are welcome to apply. If these questions are important to you, see the following checklist to get involved!
- Step 1:
- Enroll in PSY BEH 192B, The Science & Practice of Compassion, Winter Quarter 2018. This course is available to ALL undergraduates, and is required to apply for and participate in the Global Service Scholars. Completion of this course does not guarantee admission as a Global Service Scholar.
- Step 2:
- Apply to the Global Service Scholars Program during January 2018.
- Step 3:
- If accepted, you must enroll in SOC ECO 189, Advanced Seminar during Spring Quarter 2018, to prepare for the summer service trip. Students are encouraged to enroll in PP&D 115, Global Poverty & Inequality in the 21st Century.
- Step 4:
- If accepted, you will travel abroad for a four-week international service learning experience during Summer 2018. Funding provided for program fees, transportation, and housing.
In partnership with the Living Peace Foundation and the UCI School of Social Ecology.
