Welcome, Scholarship Applicants!

The Global Leaders Scholarships invest in promising individuals who want to make the world a better place through positive change. Scholarship recipients will attend global events, conferences, and summits held in the United States and internationally.

We invite individuals who meet our eligibility requirements to submit a scholarship application that will be reviewed by the Global Leaders Selection Committee. If awarded a Global Leaders Scholarship, you become a Scholar who will then work with UCCD to identify and make arrangements to attend a global leadership event.
