In December 2020, the Global Citizen Award reached a tremendous milestone with our 500th student awarded! Read the USF press release announcing this success.

Global Citizen Award recipients are recognized with a ceremony, medallion to wear at commencement, a transcript notation, and listed in the commencement program during their term of graduation. These students go on to achieve fantastic things after earning the Global Citizen Award. Here is a brief list of our progress and achievements as well as highlights from our ceremonies.
