Global Scholars Continue Studies at Otterbein

Beginning in the fall of 2024, high school students who complete the Global Scholars Diploma program through the Columbus Council on World Affairs are eligible for a renewable $19,000 scholarship from Otterbein.

Approximately 2,000 students from more than 20 school districts and private academies participate in the program, which develops globally competent students by building the awareness and skills needed to take action on global issues and to become responsible citizens of the world. Throughout the three-year program, high school students communicate and collaborate face-to-face with global community partners, businesses, civic leaders, and people of varying cultural backgrounds.

The Global Scholars Diploma is a not-for-profit, experiential learning-based program provided by the Columbus Council on World Affairs with the help of community partners, members, and sponsors. With the Global Scholars Diploma Scholarship, Otterbein not only recognizes the educational promise of students who participate in the program, but also makes it possible for students to attend a university and become part of a community that shares the values of the program.
