Each year, the Thomas W. Palmer '69 and Susan Palmer Global Scholars Program admits a small number of high-achieving first-year students who are passionate about global issues. For this competitive program we seek students who are eager to immerse themselves in interdisciplinary coursework and embrace international perspectives, regardless of their chosen academic majors.

Benefits of Being a Global Scholar

  • You'll become a member a small group of like-minded OWU students interested in the world and global issues.
  • As a Global Scholar, you receive $4000 to apply to an international experience after completing the GS requirements for years 1 & 2 (see "four-year pathway" below).
  • Upon graduation and completion of all GS requirements, your transcript will reflect your Global Scholars' designation.
