Ursuline Global Scholars Program

The Global Scholars Program reinforces The Ursuline School’s long-term commitment to excellent global education learning opportunities for its students, in an increasingly diverse and multi-cultural world.  The Global Scholars Program is built on our Catholic teachings that we are all connected by a shared humanity.
