Global Scholar Program Participation Requirements


Each Global Scholar is paired up with a peer GSP mentor and an administrative mentor. These individuals will help Global Scholars adjust to life at Clark and assist them throughout their time at Clark. Students must meet with their administrative mentors at least once a month.


Global Scholars are required to attend monthly meetings led by the GSP Student Coordinator. If a student cannot attend the meeting due to a class conflict he/she must contact Patricia Doherty in advance.

Community Service

Each Global Scholar is required to complete community service throughout the year. During the 2015/2016 academic year, Global Scholars will be volunteering in a variety of ways at Clark and in the Worcester community. Each Global Scholar has selected one of the following three projects to work on for his or her Community Service Project:

   1.) Clark University at a Glimpse

   2.) Food for Change

   3.) International Awareness

Minimum GPA

Global Scholars are expected to maintain both an annual GPA of at least a 3.0.  Failure to do so may result in a decrease or loss of Global Scholar scholarship.  

If any of the above requirements are not met, the Global Scholar may be placed on probation and/or have a reduction or loss of scholarship.
