Curious about opportunities for funded studies abroad? Ever wondered what diplomats, development specialists, or intelligence operatives actually do? Do you speak or study a foreign language? Are you interested in learning more about international careers and public service?
If the answer is yes, then please join The Global Community College Transfer Network for the inaugural CRASH COURSE IN GLOBAL EDUCATION AND INTERNATIONAL CAREERS!
The Crash Course will take place on September 25th and 26th from 12 - 5:30 EST (9 - 2:30 PST). The crash course is intended for current community college or recent transfer students that are interested in pursuing funding opportunities for study abroad and language study as well as professional international careers.

2) Your college or university is located in the United States
3) Are an American citizen or have permanent residency status (DACA students welcome)

The Global Community College Transfer Network is a soon-to-be 501c3 launched by passionate community college graduates and transfers that have received competitive funding for global education and are pursuing careers in foreign affairs. By telling the stories of incredible transfer students, we aspire to both de-stigmatize community college educational pathways while closing knowledge gaps to encourage more community college & transfer students to aspire to competitive funding and international careers. This is a labor of love for us, and we are happy to share our professional & personal networks with future generations of community college graduates. We look forward to connecting with you!
Upon completion of the crash course, opportunities for longer-term mentoring (i.e. work-shopping personal statements, talking with previous program participants, etc.) will be available to interested participants. Our goal is to improve community college student representation in competitive opportunities nationally, and you all are a key part of that. We are currently hoping to scale up our mentoring operations as we expand and build our network of community college graduates, and we are looking forward to working with you all!
