You can make service and scholarship happen.

Global Service Scholars is a young program with immense growth potential. We envision a fully-endowed program with permanent field sites around the world, each leaving a lasting impact on the local community.

The first permanent field site partnership in Paraguay between UCI and Fundación Paraguaya, received its first cohort of Scholars in 2018. Not only do these sites host Scholars, they also provide a variety of graduate student and faculty research opportunities.

The heart of the Global Service Scholars program is the students, many of whom are minority and first-generation college students. Many can’t afford international travel, and rely on scholarships and the generosity of donors to realize their service opportunity. We want our Scholars to participate fully in this learning experience regardless of their financial means.
