Kennesaw State University recognizes that a global education is essential to student success in today’s complex and interdependent world. In 2007, the KSU student body recommended and approved an International Fee to be instituted for the purpose of providing education abroad financial support. As a result, students pay an $6 per term International Fee that assists students participating in education abroad programs. Currently, eligible students may receive $800 for fee-paying students and $700 for non-fee-paying students in Global Learning Financial Support from International Fee funds and other state funds.
KSU degree-seeking undergraduate and graduate students in good academic standing are eligible for Global Learning Financial Support. Awards will made until the funds are depleted for the year.
The funding can be used for these credit education abroad experiences:
- short-term programs
- internships and exchanges
- international research
- credit programs
The Division of Student Affairs administers the fee and the Global Learning Fee Committee (GLFC) acts as an advisory committee to the Vice President of Student Affairs on policy and budgetary matters. The GLFC consists mostly of students joined by faculty and staff.
