Global Spotlight Program

Global Spotlight Program

The Global Spotlight funding program has been suspended until further notice.

Global Spotlight funding exists to support educational programs that advance one or more of St. Catherine University’s Learning Goals for Cultural Competence and Global Perspectives.

These goals are part of the University’s Internationalization Plan and actively engage students, faculty and staff in developing the following areas:

1. Knowledge of critical world issues and the ability to analyze and incorporate multiple perspectives
2. Awareness of one’s own cultural values and traditions and understanding that one exists in a complex and interdependent web of cultures and countries
3. Effective communication across languages and cultures
4. Preparation for global leadership grounded in an understanding of social responsibility

The total amount of funds available is $1,500, to be awarded each academic year. Funds will be awarded on a rolling basis until the available $1,500 has been awarded.
