Global UGRAD Exchange Program

This is a great opportunity for those who are currently studying in universities in Malaysia and want to spend half a year or one year in U.S.
Just got this email from U.S. Embassy, that they will select 10 students for 1-year program and 10 students for 6-month program of Study in the USA: 2008 Global Undergraduate Exchange Program. 
The deadline of applications is 8th January 2008. To get the word document form, just email me.



Looking for an enriching undergraduate experience in an American college or university?

The global UGRAD program provides scholarships for one semester or one academic year of U.S. study in a non-degree program. 

Successful applicants can expect an in-depth exposure to U.S. society, culture and academic institutions.  Participants will be enrolled full-time in undergraduate course-work with opportunities for ongoing interaction with U.S. faculty and student peers, and for exposure to U.S. academic and classroom culture. 

Courses on topics including academic research and writing, critical thinking, time management, note-taking, studying for and taking tests will be offered.

Students will be provided with opportunities to participate in up to ten hours of community service activities per semester.  Additionally, an internship will be offered to all academic-year participants during the program.  Internships will be related to each participant's field of study and/or career plans.  Upon completion of the program, participants are required to return to Malaysia and continue their studies.


Scholarships will be granted to students who currently are enrolled in an undergraduate degree program in their home country, and who have completed their first, second, or third year of undergraduate study.
