Where Global Citizens Are Made



Real World Experiences for Real People

Our small group cultural immersion experiences are designed for intelligent, mature and independent college students who truly believe in the principles of global citizenship:

“A global citizen is someone who identifies with being a part of an emerging world community, and whose actions contribute to building this community’s values and practices." Global Citizenship: A Path to Building Identity and Community in a Globalized World. 

All of our experiences are led by local professionals in each destination. You can choose from activities such as photography classes, foodie tours, ethnic neighborhood walks, language classes, city-wide scavenger hunts, street art tours, traditional cooking and dance classes, camping, DIY museum visits, yoga classes, roundtable discussions with local community leaders, social impact projects, cafe-hopping, surfing lessons, wine and beer tastings, networking with professionals and expats and much more.  

Instead of the typical "one size fits all" approach to international programs, our experiences are designed to give you the flexibility and autonomy to immerse yourself in cultures and places around the world in a way that works best for you. Customize your own program with the help of one of your professors or join one of our mixed group experiences with other students from colleges and universities throughout North America. We're sure that once you've tried IG Scholar's unique approach to global travel, you won't accept anything less! 

“My program consisted of a week-long home-stay in Costa Rica...an experience that I would not have been able to have on my own, but I now crave.
— Hallie P. (Chicago, IL)
