The Global Gap Year Fellowship at UNC-Chapel Hill is the first college-sponsored gap year program that allows students to design their own experience or join Global Citizen Year (New in 2019!) for a year abroad.
The Fellowship partners with UNC-CH Office of Undergraduate Admissions, which helps promote the program and select the recipients, and works with students as they follow their passions working with an international community.
Our new partnership with Global Citizen Year will help the University keep up with the growing demands of students who seek long-term, transformative gap year experiences. Resources from an anonymous donor will enable the University to triple the number of students in its Global Gap Year Fellowship program, growing the cohort from seven to 21 Fellows per year by 2020.
