Global Undergraduate Exchange Program

Global Undergraduate Exchange Program

The Global Undergraduate Exchange Program (also known as the Global UGRAD Program) is sponsored by the US Department of State’s Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs. It is a fully-funded scholarship for one semester of non-degree academic study at an assigned U.S. college or university.

It aims to recruit participants from underrepresented, non-elite backgrounds and emerging leaders committed to their home communities. Successful applicants get an in-depth exposure to US society, culture, and academic institutions, a chance to enhance their knowledge, and an opportunity to share their cultures and traditions with people in the United States.

All participants will be enrolled in full-time, non-degree, undergraduate course work chosen from their host institution’s existing curriculum. Participants will be required to enroll in at least two courses in their major and at least one course in a U.S. Studies field, such as U.S. history, literature, art, or government. Participants will live in campus housing facilities with American peers, and will be required to participate in twenty hours of community service. There will also be a virtual arrival orientation and an in-person end-of-program workshop.

Grant benefits include international travel, tuition, room and board, accident/sickness insurance, monthly stipend, and funding for books.

  • Be an Indonesian citizen
  • Be over 18 years of age
  • Be enrolled in a full-time undergraduate program (S1/D4) in Indonesia, having completed a minimum of one semester of study and having at least one more semester to complete at their home institution upon return. Preference will be given to those who are in their third or fifth semester.

  • Demonstrate a command of written and spoken English as attested by a recent (less than two years old) TOEFL ITP or TOEFL Prediction score of 500
