Every student who completes the GLI survey has an equal chance of being chosen as a GLI Fellow beginning in the fall semester. Only a limited selection of students will be chosen. There is no application; only the GLI survey is necessary to complete. The eligibility criteria are listed above.

By early June, selected participants will be contacted via email and will be asked to confirm their participation. Selected students will be registered for their GLI Freshman Seminar prior to orientation.

Students who are not selected to participate may request continued consideration as more space may become available during the summer.
