The Global Undergraduate Exchange Program (Global UGRAD) has offered a scholarship for one semester of non-degree academic study at a US college or university.
Students enrolled in full-time undergraduate programs who have completed at least one semester or have one semester remaining to complete their graduation, are eligible to apply for the scholarship, according to the US Embassy in Dhaka.
However, applicants must achieve a minimum TOEFL score of 72iBT or IELTS 6.0 to be eligible for the scholarship and must be under 25 years of age.
The purpose of this program is to provide promising students with a deeper understanding of American culture, while building leadership skills and promoting a mutual understanding between people of the United States and other countries.
All participants will be enrolled in full-time, non-degree, undergraduate coursework chosen from their host institution's existing curriculum.
Participants will be required to take one, three-credit US studies course to enhance their understanding of the United States.
They will live in campus housing facilities with American peers and will be required to participate in 20 hours of community service. There will also be a virtual arrival orientation and an in-person end-of-program workshop for participants.
Applicants are required to return directly to their home country upon completion of the programme.
Students interested in the scholarship will have to submit their applications by 28 February.
