The Global Scholar Search program is designed to match high achieving students who are recognized and nominated by their counselor/teachers with a unique opportunity – one that will provide the optimal environment to nurture and develop their talents, helping them realize their full potential.
We have solicited nominations from high schools across the globe and each school has been invited to nominate students who meet or exceed all of the following criteria:
To apply for the Global Scholar Award, students are required to submit transcripts, test scores, proof of leadership experiences, co/extra curricular activities, etc. In addition, they have to submit an essay describing their long-term goals and how they intend to maximize their college experience. These essays are used to evaluate candidates during the initial review and are provided to universities for their respective award candidate evaluation.
Following a comprehensive evaluation of all applicants, Gen Next will provide institutions with a list of all eligible applicants who have met not just Gen Next’s criteria, but also, all of the established institutional criteria.
While you review the applicants to select awardees, the eligible students will research your institution and rank it on their wish list. Gen Next will facilitate the final match process to ensure the “right-fit” Global Scholars matriculate to your campus.

Your award package should be competitive and sufficiently robust to attract the interest of the best and brightest students. In assembling your award package, we also encourage you to factor in your institution’s mission and values. For example, if you pride yourself on your ability to support undergraduate research, it makes sense to include such an opportunity in the award package.
In addition to the components listed here, we also encourage you to bring your creativity to play here. What would make for an attractive offer for a talented and driven student? What resources and opportunities might best position a future leader for success at your institution and beyond?
