Globalize your education.

Global Opportunities helps undergraduate students with significant financial need access international learning opportunities. All University of Washington undergraduates should consider study abroad. We strive to make study abroad accessible for all UW undergraduates by supporting students in as they plan for study abroad, providing financial support to scholarship recipients, and promoting diversity within the study abroad community.

Upcoming Deadlines

The next deadline for GO! and Fritz Scholarships is Thursday, April 24, 2014 at 5 pm. Students studying abroad on programs during summer, early fall, and fall quarters 2014 may apply. Students participating in UW programs, Exploration Seminars, University Exchanges, affiliated programs, and unaffiliated programs may apply for the GO! and/or the Fritz Scholarship.
