Global Engagement Program

Ohio State’s Global Engagement Program organizes, enhances and promotes global engagement within the College of Veterinary Medicine by providing immersive experiences for students that take place anywhere from internationally to in the local community. These opportunities provide unique learning experiences for CVM students based on their individual interests. We have three general models for our programs: Research Experience, Course Work, and Service Learning. 

Each year, the program also offers Global Engagement Travel Awards to support student travel (international or domestic) for immersive activities that expand the student’s cultural and technical competencies related global one health (research, education, service, outreach, capacity building, etc.) that supports their future career goals. The number of travel scholarships and their amount vary depending on the applicant pool and funding available for that particular year. Learn more about applying for awards.
