Thank you for your interest in the Global Citizen of the Year award! We're excited to review your application and look forward to seeing how you are making a difference in the world.

For questions about the award, contact Senior Associate Vice President of Marketing Amy Ruhter McMillan at [email protected].

Part One: Tell us about yourself.

 

Part Two: Share your story.

Show us how you’re making an impact in the world through studying or interning abroad – be it through academic, philanthropic, or personal efforts. There are a million avenues of change. What's yours?

If selected as a Finalist or Winner, content from this section will be used in Global Citizen of the Year promotion and IES Abroad marketing materials.

 

Part Three: Submit photos.

Upload a profile picture and three photos from abroad to help us visualize your experience. Please name each photo with your name and location and any other helpful details (ex: Kevin Smith_University College London Hospital in London).

  • Profile picture should clearly show your face and capture your personality. If chosen for this award, this photo would be used across promotional materials.
  • Photos from abroad (3) will ideally showcase you making a difference in the world. If you do not have photos that demonstrate that part of your story, please include high-resolution photos of you abroad.
Please upload a clear, high-resolution (300dpi) profile picture of yourself.
