USC Upstate’s Global Discovery Travel Award Program is designed to provide support for selected university students to travel to other countries to learn about the culture, customs, political, educational, social systems, and religious practices. 

Global Discovery 2014 Information  

Students will be selected to participate in this program each year through a competitive process and will be chosen on the basis of: 

  • Their financial need for support
  • Demonstrated academic ability
  • Genuine interest in learning about other nations
  • Their willingness to share their travel experience and insights with others upon their return to the United States

This program is made possible through partial funding from the Division of Student Affairs and is extended to students who have completed at least one full semester (12 hours) at USC Upstate at the time of application and have achieved a 2.5 or better GPA on all USC Upstate coursework. Student applicants are required to submit a one page statement of purpose indicating what they hope to learn while studying abroad. In addition, each applicant is expected to have a letter of recommendation completed by a professor in the student’s major.
