The Global Citizenship Fellowship Programme
The Global Citizen Fellowship Programme is a four-stage fellowship program that complements university education in developing a student holistically, through aspects such as critical thinking, cultural education, problem-solving abilities, and leadership skills. The programme will consist of international aspirants, with the aim of transforming them into global citizens.
Three defining features
Global citizenship is more important now than ever because the world has become highly divided. Nations and societies are moving towards isolationism – withdrawing towards their own cultures and ideologies. However, the world shares problems that can be solved only when nations collaborate and cooperate with each other. Not only challenges but the nature of the 21st century has presented opportunities that can be seized only through global cooperation and a change in the value system.
We conduct leadership summits featuring guests of high repute, workshops on leadership and communication skills, offer cultural integration through interaction and immersion, and provide constant guidance for our citizens’ projects throughout the fellowship.
We believe in learning beyond the books and expect our fellows to follow the same ideology. Fellows are given the opportunity to explore various avenues to gain experience, including volunteering, group projects, field trips and industry visits.
Keeping in mind the academic and project-related needs of the citizens, we provide for free foreign exchanges during the fellowship. Our fellows can visit places they feel would benefit the most from their project, and execute it to perfection.
The fellowship has been divided into the following four four levels
