With $5,000, how would you create change in the global community? UCLA’s Global Citizens Fellowship (GCF) provides undergraduate students the opportunity to travel abroad and answer that question each summer. We invite you to learn more about the fellowship and if interested, apply to complete a service project of your own! Please see below for important upcoming dates, deadlines, and information:
GCF Reception and Information Workshop Monday, November 18th 1-3pm in DeNeve Plaza Room B
You’re invited to come learn about our 2019 Fellow, Olivia Hansen, and to hear about her project, “KumiKonnect,” that she completed in Uganda this past summer.
Following the presentation, interested students are encouraged to stay and attend our application workshop to learn more about the project proposal process.
Light refreshments will be served. All are welcome!
