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.  

Global Scholar Search

Talent and motivation abound in high schools. But what about those “diamonds in the rough” who represent the triple crown of academic excellence, a strong leadership record and a well-rounded profile through extracurricular activities and/or service?

Students who tick all of those boxes are in far shorter supply. And with the right intellectual and social environment, these students can become academic and social leaders within their university communities, eventually applying those expanded skills to influence and shape our world. How many of those students would thrive on your campus?

The Talent Pool

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:

  • Current 12th grade student (graduating May 2021)
  • Top 10% of their class
  • Record of Leadership (head girl/boy, student council, captain of team etc.)
  • Robust co/extra curricular and/or service-oriented activities

Application Process and Selection

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.

Components of a Global Scholar Award Package

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?

Financial Scholarship

To attract these high achieving students, it will be important to offer them the highest available financial scholarship.

Admission to Honors College/Program

Work with your Honors College/Program to ensure the students you select for the award meet their admission requirements.

Work Study Opportunity

This can bump up the overall financial component of the award and provide selected students a chance to build valuable professional skills while completing their degrees.

Scholarship for study abroad or domestic study away program.

The opportunity to participate in a defined study abroad program or earn credits through an off-campus program could be highly attractive

International Student Ambassadorship

Position them for leadership right from the start by having them serve as an international student ambassador. This can also be a great way to launch an international student ambassador program to support recruitment efforts and current international student initiatives.

Faculty Mentor

Help these high achieving students get their academic footing quickly by providing a faculty mentor who can guide them through their early days, identifying resources and pointing out stumbling blocks.
