Who We Are
The President’s Award for Global Learning empowers students and faculty to examine global challenges while incorporating in-country learning into the classroom experience. Faculty and students work across academic disciplines to innovate and explore new ideas and solutions across the world.
The award provides critical funding for project implementation and international travel expenses to students and faculty. The teams work with international partners during an intensive spring course to plan and execute their projects. After completing their projects, the students continue to work with their teams to share their experiences and bring learning back to Texas.
The President’s Award for Global Learning is the signature program of the International Board of Advisors and is coordinated by Texas Global, the Office of the President, and the Office of the Executive Vice President and Provost.
What We Are Fundraising For
Your contribution will help fund hard costs, equipment, student travel and other expenses associated with the research and projects carried out by the students and communities with whom they work around the world.
Every gift, no matter the size, makes a big difference. With your support, the program will have an even greater impact—on the students, the faculty, the university, and the communities involved. The more funding raised, the more students and communities can participate.
Your investment in the President’s Award for Global Learning helps make UT a leading global university and a global force for good. Thank you for changing the world by supporting the President’s Award for Global Learning and empowering students to take on our most pressing challenges!
“This program is a great opportunity for ambitious undergrads to collaborate and bring a project to life. Most importantly, this program has given me the opportunity to take part in something much larger than myself by hopefully impacting the world and moving the needle on a global issue.”
