Join 14 other Badgers on this fully-funded summer program to Gaborone, Botswana! Led by UW Professor Neil Kodesh, Global Gateway is a unique, engaging experience designed specially for first- and second-year UW students. Applications are due January 18, 2019.
Through classroom learning, guided trips in Gaborone and the surrounding villages, activities and overnight excursions, you’ll explore culture, education, public health and environmental issues within contemporary Botswana. There is no language pre-requisite for this program.
Each student selected for the program will receive a Global Gateway scholarship covering the program fee, including airfare!
There is expected to be a high level of interest in the UW Global Gateway Program. As space on the program is limited, IAP encourages students to put care and thought into their application materials. Students should begin applications as early as possible, as one component of the application is an essay that requires reading a Botswana-specific news source over the course of a week. Select applicants will be invited for an in-person interview before final decisions are made.
Accepted students will demonstrate a strong commitment to the program and its learning objectives, be an active participant while on the program, and help promote international education upon their return to UW-Madison. Both need and merit-based criteria will be taken into consideration.
The summer 2019 program in Botswana is offered by UW-Madison in cooperation with CIEE. This program is funded in partnership with the UW-Madison Office of Student Financial Aid.
