Global Scholar Intensive: 10 days. Virtual.
Session 3: July 5-July 16
Session 4: July 18-July 29
All of our programs kick off with the three day virtual Power Up, bringing together youth leaders and experts from around the globe to jumpstart our thinking around the global system, change making, and the power of youth.
The group then continues their journey online, for another 7 days of live conversations, powerful workshops, small group bonding, and social events. The group meets from 11am-4pm ET each day, to accommodate youth joining from many time zones. Every day begins with a group meeting, followed by an issue seminar with a global expert and/or a training workshop. Most days Scholars also meet with their breakout group of 6-9 students, led by one of our skilled facilitators. While Scholars might have the occasional evening reflection assignment, more often they’re joining virtual social events hosted by our alumni. Last year’s events included virtual dance party, quiz night, campfire, and more.
Session 3 (July 5-16) runs Tues-Friday during week 1, and Monday-Saturday during week 2.
Session 4 (July 18-30) meets Monday-Friday both weeks.

SWITCHING OR CANCELING PROGRAMS
You can switch programs at no cost through May 15.
Please be advised of our cancellation policy below:
We work hard to keep costs low and to provide a valuable program that is competitive with similar offerings, so we ask for your understanding to respect our Cancellation and Refund Policy.
If you cancel within 30 days of the start date of your Global Scholar session, you won’t receive a refund. If you cancel within 60 days but more than 30 days to the start date of your Global Scholar, you will receive a refund of 50% of the amount you’ve paid, excluding your non-refundable Application Fee.
If we are forced to cancel in-person programming, any student who has been accepted to an in-person program is welcome to switch to a virtual session, or receive a full refund of any fees paid.
Space at our courses is limited, and we have to reserve student housing and vendors well in advance. As a result, our ability to provide refunds is limited strictly to these timetables. We understand that few can afford to pay for a program that they can’t attend, so we strongly encourage you to consider our refund policy when making future plans and to plan carefully.
