GW was named the top producer among medium-sized higher education institutions for the Department of State’s Benjamin A. Gilman International Scholarship for study abroad, which diversifies the student population that studies abroad and the destinations of study. The honor comes as a huge source of pride, as GW has increased efforts to have a diversity of student voices, upbringings, financial backgrounds and fields of study represented through study abroad across the globe. According to the Office for Study Abroad, more than 1,000 GW students study abroad each academic year in more than 150 programs.

GW Senior Takes Part in COP26 Conference

Francesca Edralin, international affairs major and journalism/mass communications and sustainability minor, attended the United Nations Climate Change Conference in Glasgow, Scotland, as a storytelling fellow for Planet Forward. She spent her time chronicling the event from as many angles as possible. Her experiences at and through GW will be valuable assets as she seeks to become a driver of change and live up to the bargain others before her have failed to do—leave the world a better place than she found it.

"Thomas Buergenthal visited my Holocaust class @GWtweets today and I’ll never forget it. It was the first time in my life hearing from a Holocaust survivor directly. Research through text is one thing. Hearing directly from the person is another."
