Global Glimpse is committed to making global education financially accessible to students from all socioeconomic backgrounds through high school partnerships and generous scholarships. The Partner School Program is an exclusive scholarship program that inspires young leaders to promote social responsibility and global consciousness in their schools and communities. Nominated and accepted students participate in leadership and global education after-school workshops to prepare for their summer immersion experience.
Students at our partner high schools are nominated to participate in the program by school faculty. Nominations and are based on demonstrated leadership, community involvement and potential for collegiate and career success and accepted students receive need based scholarships.
Global Glimpse Leaders
Global Glimpse Leaders are talented and diverse educators at our partner schools who volunteer their time, energy, and experience to support the Global Glimpse program. Leaders assist in student nomination, prepare students for the program, and travel abroad with students on the summer immersion programs. They are extraordinary individuals who guide students to broaden their perspective and grow as individuals.
Partner schools are committed to working with Global Glimpse to promote global awareness, social responsibility, and youth leadership in their school community. Partner schools commit to support Global Glimpse in selecting a program leader and nominating outstanding students to participate in the Global Glimpse program each year. New schools are accepted in the Spring and Fall. Please contact Executive Director Eliza Pesuit for more information on how to become a Global Glimpse Partner School.
