Levermore Global Scholars


International flags

See if you have what it takes to be a global scholar.

If you answer yes to the following questions, the Levermore Global Scholar program may be perfect for you:

  • Is contributing to your community a high priority in your life?
  • Is connecting to people with diverse backgrounds important to you?
  • Do you want college to help you fully understand global impacts on both human life and economy?
  • Is a connection with New York City cultural life important to you?
  • Do you want to leave college secure in your ability to lead?

Levermore Global Scholars is selective, admitting 30-40 freshmen each year. Here’s what we look for:

  • Strong academic performance. The average high school GPA for incoming freshmen in Fall 2013 was 3.80.
  • Leadership potential, such as serving as president of a high school club or captain of a team.
  • Commitment to service through school organizations such as Key Club, Red Cross or Amnesty International, or community activities with a service component.
  • Global awareness, through educating others about global issues or participating in such activities as Model UN or Amnesty International, studying foreign languages or traveling abroad.
