The U.S. Embassy in Egypt is pleased to launch Global Undergraduate Exchange Program (Global UGRAD) – a fully funded academic and cultural exchange program designed to increase participants’ knowledge and global connectivity.
Global UGRAD participants come from 60+ countries and study for a semester at universities across the United States. After the program, participants are higher-achieving students, stronger leaders, and more actively engaged in their communities.
Since 2008, World Learning has facilitated the placement of more than 2,500 Global UGRAD students at colleges and universities across the United States. Students participate in one semester of non-degree study and leave the U.S. with the tools to become leaders in their professions and home communities. They also receive access to grants and professional development resources available only to alumni of U.S. Department of State exchange programs.
