The Global Leaders Fellowship is for incoming graduate students (master’s and doctoral) at the George Washington University (starting Fall 2017) who will return to their countries of origin to apply skills learned through their formal education at the GW. The fellowship is intended for GW graduate students who will be future leaders in their fields in their home countries.

This fellowship is for students who have not studied or worked in the U.S. or other countries aside from their home country.

Three Global Leaders Fellowships, which will cover up to 18 credit hours will be awarded for 2017-18. The grantee is to provide funds from other sources for books, living, and other expenses, and must provide certification of this support. A Fellowship is renewable each year for a cumulative maximum of three years for Master’s candidates and up to five years for doctoral candidates. A grantee must submit renewal materials for the Fellowship each year; renewal is contingent upon the grantee’s grades (GPA of 3.0 or better). The Fellowship is valid for one degree only. Fellowships apply to the fall and spring semesters. Awards for the summer sessions are by petition only and subject to available funding.
