Short-Term: Embedded, Summer & Global Fellowship Program Selection Criteria

Criteria are not listed by order of importance; all are considered as part of a holistic application review.

  1. GPA—minimum of 2.5. If you have a GPA below 2.5, but are not on academic probation, you can apply and your application will be reviewed on a case-by-case basis.
  2. Quality of Study Abroad Application Essay and Resume (if applicable).
  3. Preference is given to qualified seniors, qualified juniors, and qualified sophomores in that order.
  4. A disciplinary violation could affect acceptance to a study abroad program. A student on disciplinary probation cannot participate on a short-term program.
  5. Qualified Global Fellowship applicants who have never been on a CSB+SJU sponsored Global Fellowship program receive preference over students who have already participated in that type of program. Previous short-term study abroad participation is not factored in these selection criteria.
  6. Quality of Study Abroad Interview (if applicable)*

*Interviews  are only required for Global Fellowships. Directors may elect to conduct interviews for other short-term programs.When a program is filled to capacity, a ranked waiting list of qualified students will be kept to fill any cancellations.

A student cannot be accepted to a program if he/she has not completed the application process.
