The Global Citizens Grant provides students with the opportunity to pursue summer volunteer and public service projects outside of the United States. The intent of the program is to support student projects that are independently designed and focus on providing direct service by working in local communities. By enabling students to immerse themselves in foreign cultures, the Global Citizens Grant aims to encourage a broadening of perspective among volunteers, the foreign communities in which they will work, and the Bowdoin community to which they will return.
Applications for 2013 will be available on Monday, October 15 and due on Friday, February 1, 2013.
