Ursuline Global Scholars Program
As part of The Ursuline Education Network (UEN), The Ursuline School co-developed and now offers a Global Scholars Program for high school students who successfully demonstrate a strong interest in global citizenship, advocacy of world issues, and a significant commitment of "Serviam."
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.
