GIEUs (Global Intercultural Experience for Undergraduates) are project-based service-learning programs. Earn 3 credits taking a semester-long pre-departure course on intercultural learning, conducting fieldwork abroad for 3–4 weeks during spring or summer, and completing a community education project in fall term with your cohort. Pell Grant recipients on GIEU programs automatically receive the GIEU Pell Scholarship to cover their entire program fee. All LSA students with demonstrated financial need—including Pell Grant recipients—are eligible for additional funding through the LSA Scholarships Office’s Global Experience Scholarship.
