Changing the World

Do you think your education is about more than just you?

Wilson Scholars know that in order to change the world you first need to understand it, and to understand the world, you need to think about how it could be changed. As the Wilson Scholars Program continues to grow and enroll students, we'll share their stories of how they are changing the world.

Each of the Wilson Scholars are provided numerous resources and opportunities to explore the world as well as impact the parts of the world they travel to. In addition to full institutional cost, each Wilson Scholar is provided a $10,000 Experiential Learning Fund (ELF) which is to be utilized over 4 years. During the Wilson Scholars’ first year, every cohort utilizes their ELF together in an effort to educate the Wilson Scholars on how to craft an idea, set a budget, and move towards a goal when traveling abroad. Following the first year, with approval from the faculty director, every Wilson Scholar is able to use their ELF in any way to better their global understanding.
