DEADLINE: January 31st GEF supports undergraduates, graduates, and student teams working with grassroots organizations and communities abroad. GEF targets students who may not otherwise have the means to afford a global experience. Students design their own service projects and can apply in the spring.

• Are an undergraduate or graduate student enrolled at UNC-Chapel Hill
• Will return to UNC in the fall following their global engagement experience
• Would not otherwise pursue or have the means to afford the engagement experience
• Eligible experiences must be confirmed by the time the student applies for GEF
