About The Program

If you’re fired up about global challenges from climate change to global security to the fight for racial justice, and committed to getting involved, this is the program for you. Global Scholars are eager to explore, dig deep, and ask tough questions. They know the many issues we face are reflective of complex economic, political and social systems that need to be challenged. And Global Scholars don’t sit on the sidelines and wait for change to happen. They’re committed to exploring their role and power to be part of the solution. Global Scholars are dreamers, builders, and doers. They know it’s up to us to pursue, design and demand our shared future.

Who is this program for?

This program is for rising 9th-12th graders who are curious, bold, and visionary. You do not need any particular prior experience or coursework; the biggest thing we look for is curiosity and eagerness to explore urgent global challenges and become changemakers. The program is held in English.

Where will this program take place?

This summer our Washington, DC programs are based at beautiful Georgetown University.

Housing: Scholars stay in a secure dorms on campus alongside our program staff. Most rooms are doubles, with a shared bathroom on the floor.

Meals: While we eat many of our meals in the cafeteria , we also eat in downtown Washington, D.C. on the days we are visiting offices or sightseeing. Favorite destinations include the food trucks and Ethiopian food!

Price: We are committed to ensuring as many students as possible can benefit from this life-changing experience. Every year about 50% of the class receives scholarship support to attend.

The cost of this in-person program is $1930 through Feb 15, and $2100 through April 5. After April 5 the price is $2300. We are a small program and fill quickly, so encourage applicants to apply early.

Please review suggested fees on our website, here.

The program fee includes room, board, materials and the program itself. Scholars are responsible for paying for transportation to/from Washington DC, supplemental meals or snacks, and spending money. Scholars are also expected to pay for lunch on the two days we sight see downtown. Although it’s hard to estimate, a reasonable amount of spending money might be $50-75/week.

In 2023, we awarded over $50,000 in need-based scholarships to attend the program.

Travel and Packing:

We will share travel, packing, and other welcome information with students admitted to the program. We will also host welcome calls in June, and bi-weekly Q&A sessions on Instagram Live (find us at @AMPGlobalYouth and @amp-global-scholar).
