Mission Statement

Engaging the world to empower students to cultivate new knowledge and gain the skills needed to be active and informed citizens of our global community.

The Office of Global Programs and Fellowships ensures international educational opportunities that provide intellectual rigor, cultural immersion, and personal, academic, and professional growth by:

  • Working closely with the faculty and our partner institutions worldwide designing, developing, and supporting programs that encourage students to study in other countries.

  • Advising Columbia undergraduates on potential programs internationally and ensuring that their time abroad supports their academic goals at home.

  • Providing information about, and support in applying for, fellowships and scholarships.

  • Developing and managing international collaborations and strategic direction.
