The BVU Global Fellows Program aims to open substantive dialogue on issues of sustainability and geopolitics from a global perspective. The Global Fellows are selected in a competitive essay contest during their first year at BVU. During January interim of their second year, Global Fellows participate in a fully-funded, academically-oriented, interdisciplinary international experience. During their junior and senior years, Global Fellows give back to the university as global ambassadors with a Scholar's Day presentation and as student mentors for the first year program. Following their trip to Chile, students will return to the BVU campus to promote globalism, environmental sustainability, and international awareness to the BVU campus and to the wider community.
