THANKS FOR YOUR INTEREST IN THE GLOBAL SCHOLARS CERTIFICATE PROGRAM
WE ARE REVIEWING THE PROGRAM MATERIALS FOR THE 2018-2019 SEASON AND WILL HAVE EVERYTHING YOU NEED UPDATED HERE BY JUNE 1, 2018. PLEASE CHECK BACK THEN.
MEANWHILE, SIGNUP FOR THE WORLD AFFAIRS COUNCIL’S EMAIL LIST SO YOU’LL BE UPDATED ON EVERYTHING WE DO AND TO GET THE “WHAT IN THE WORLD?” WEEKLY QUIZ IN YOUR INBOX.
Each year students in the Tennessee World Affairs Council area are invited to participate in the Global Studies Certificate Program.
The program is designed for students to accumulate points toward becoming Tennessee Global Scholars. A minimum of 100 points are required to qualify for the certificate which is presented at a World Affairs Council program toward the end of the school year or provided to the host school for presentation. Students need not appear at a WAC program to qualify to have a certificate issued.
The program is designed for students in any setting to complete enough elements to qualify.
Many of the activities that can be used to accumulate towards completion are World Affairs Council programs (i.e. Academic WorldQuest, Weekly Quiz, etc.), however, other activities can be used. For example, the worksheet includes activities under the Sister Cities of Nashville and simulations like the Model United Nations that quality for credit.
The Council allows enough flexibility for students to request consideration of additional elements for points to meet the completion criteria.
For example, in certain locations students may not be able to easily access the same scope of programs and opportunities as in other locations. Global affairs programs may be more difficult to find in some areas so the Council will make every reasonable accommodation for students to substitute worthwhile global affairs awareness activities for programs that are not easily accessible. (i.e. if a local school does not offer Academic WorldQuest, etc.)
The program runs through April 15th of each year. Credits earned after that date count toward the following academic year’s total.
