2024 Theme: Global Leaders for Tomorrow’s World

This year UW-Madison will incorporate the theme of leadership. Students will discover concepts of leadership and “being a global citizen” as they relate to different majors and subsequent careers here on campus. The program will take a holistic approach at understanding such through the lenses of science and technology, history and humanities, and business and entrepreneurship. In this approach, students will be encouraged to develop their passions into paths in higher education. After finishing the program, students should be better equipped to understand their change, choices and solutions to a better, more sustainable future. 

Who is Eligible? 

This program is offered to non-US citizens and residents that are between the ages of 15-18. Students must be non-matriculated into a university to further quality. In response to the ever-changing world of Covid-19, we now require all participants to be accompanied by an adult chaperone to the program or have a U.S.-based contact that could serve as a guardian in the event that a participant contracted Covid during the program. If you or you know someone who meetings these requirements, then apply starting on November 28, 2023.
