WHAT IS THE GENSHAFT-GREENBAUM GLOBAL EXPLORER SCHOLARSHIP?

The Genshaft-Greenbaum Global Explorers Scholarship (3GE) provides recipients with up to $10,000 to use towards an approved international or domestic travel experience during their time at USF.  This invitation-only scholarship is awarded to qualified prospective First-Time-In-College (FTIC) students (those currently applying to USF) from all three campuses who commit to the University of South Florida and the Judy Genshaft Honors College.

Recipients may use the funds for approved international travel such as:

  • Any USF Honors Study Abroad program (see our current offerings here)
  • Any USF Education Abroad program (see the current offerings here)
  • Any USF affiliate study abroad provider (see the list of affiliates here)
  • A structured international internship or research opportunity vetted by the 3GE coordinator

In addition, recipients may choose to use the funds for approved domestic opportunities such as study away programs, internships, and research opportunities. 

 

ELIGIBILITY CRITERIA (SUMMER/FALL 2023 FTIC ADMISSION)

The 3GE scholarship is available only to First-Time-In-College students who are currently applying to USF.  In addition, students must also have a minimum USF recalculated GPA of 4.0 (explained here) and a minimum SAT score of 1450 or a minimum ACT score of 33. Prospective students who exceed these minimum qualifications will then be eligible to apply for the scholarship.  Applicant submissions are then reviewed by an Honors College 3GE selection committee.  After review, applicants will be notified as to the decision made by the committee.

WHO IS AN IDEAL CANDIDATE?

Central to our mission at the Judy Genshaft Honors College is the cultivation of that quality that the philosopher Aristotle identified as “practical wisdom.”  This is a quality that is realized when one’s perception, understanding, choices, and habits work together to bring about evermore desirable actions and outcomes. In a time when even the most intimate parts of our lives are so evidently shaped by global events, our ability to become practically wise thought-leaders, regardless of our disciplinary focus or life ambitions, depends upon a global competency. The purpose of this scholarship is to empower those students whose curiosity, creativity, and life ambitions call them to “think big,” inquire deeply, and research widely.
