While the Global Undergraduate Exchange Program participants for spring 2017 are just beginning to arrive, World Learning has already been gearing up for the 2017-2018 program. The Global UGRAD application cycle for the 2017-2018 year has officially ended, and from these applicants, the next generation of Global UGRADs will come forth. In total, there were an impressive 22,161 application begun and 5,201 completed applications. The U.S. embassies and Fulbright Commissions around the globe are working diligently to review all of the applications they received, with students expected to learn the results of their efforts around May 2017.
If you are considering applying (or re-applying!) to Global UGRAD Program for 2018-2019, look out for the application in the fall of 2017.
