Lawrence J. Chastang

The Lawrence J. Chastang Global Fellowship

The Global Perspectives Office at UCF and the Global Connections Foundation will provide an opportunity for an outstanding UCF student, undergraduate (at least junior level) or graduate, to serve as a Global Fellow.

The selected student will work on a research project related to the broad area of globalization, under the direction of Global Perspectives Office staff and scholars, with the aim of producing a final paper that is worthy of publication. In addition, Global Fellows will contribute to the activities of the Global Perspectives Office and affiliated programs.

The weekly time commitment is approximately 15 hours. Global Fellows will receive a $1,000.00 fellowship for the semester. Students aspiring to become Global Fellows should have a minimum GPA of 3.5. A board of reviewers drawn from UCF and the community will evaluate applications and make selections. A one-page cover letter, a 5-10 page writing sample, an unofficial transcript and a resume with two listed references are required.


Fellowship Award: $1,000.00

Application Deadlines:

  • Fall 2017 – August 4, 2017
