Dixon Global Scholars Program

An exciting program for a select number of Honors students, the Dixon Global Policy Scholars (GPS) offers a challenging learning opportunity for students interested in pursuing a major scholarship (such as the Rhodes, Truman or Marshall) and in enhancing their knowledge of the issues that shape the world.

THE 2015 DIXON GPS APPLICATION IS NOW AVAILABLE!

  • Priority consideration for Educational Enrichment Travel Grants for summer 2015, summer 2016, and summer 2017.
  • Support in applying for major scholarships and graduate school.
  • Specialized coursework, seminars and workshops.

ELIGIBILITY

The Dixon GPS is open to:
