UNC’s Global Gap Year Fellowship helps students become global citizens with the cross-cultural competencies and professional and life skills necessary to shape and shift North Carolina’s future. Our program uniquely supports the university’s mission to “open access to global opportunities” by recruiting youth from underrepresented backgrounds. Participants may select to self-design their gap years in collaboration with Campus Y staff or participate in an intensive, ten-month global service-learning and entrepreneurial leadership training program with our partner organization, Global Citizen Year.
