GCI Fellowship 2022 Application Webinar: January 8, 2022

Updated: Jan 5, 2022

Interested students and school counselors/teachers are invited to join a GCI webinar to learn more about the GCI Fellowship application process!

Saturday, January 8 | Fellowship 2022 Application Webinar | 10:00AM ET or 8:00PM ET

GCI is currently accepting applications from secondary school students for the GCI Fellowship 2022! The deadline to apply is January 31, 2022 at 11:59 PM ET. We encourage all students to begin their application as early as possible, to give themselves, their parent(s)/guardian(s) and 2 recommenders enough time to work on the application’s various components.

To help interested secondary school students and school counselors/teachers better understand the Fellowship application timeline, process and components, GCI will host an application focused webinar on Saturday, January 8, 2022 at 10:00 AM ET. Students and school counselors/teachers should join the webinar for:

  • a brief introduction to the GCI Fellowship program

  • a detailed overview of the application timeline and components

  • audience Q&A


*Please note that due to low enrollment for the 8:00PM ET webinar, GCI has cancelled and consolidated the webinar into just the 10:00AM ET time. We look forward to you joining us! Please reach out to if you have any questions.


The Summit, GCI’s flagship program, convenes secondary school students from across the globe in an intensive, nine-day experience where they explore global issues through the lens of ethical leadership, while learning new frameworks for dialogue and problem-solving rooted in mutual respect and empathy. Following the Summit, participants are partnered with mentors to complete a 10-month Fellowship in which they develop local service projects.

Since 2014, GCI has hosted 160 students from 70 countries ⎯ including Colombia, Zimbabwe, Japan, Syria, the United States, Iran, Afghanistan ⎯ whose local service projects have positively impacted communities worldwide.
