Gulf Scholars Program

The National Academies’ Gulf Research Program has launched the Gulf Scholars Program (GSP), a five-year pilot program seeks to build the capacity of Gulf-based IHEs in preparing undergraduate students to work across these complexities and who will serve the Gulf of Mexico region. Each year the GRP will select and fund a cohort of 5-7 colleges and universities to participate in the GSP. Each participating institution will receive funds to create academic, co-curricular, and extracurricular experiences around key learning outcomes in engaging and preparing a cohort of students for leadership in securing a safer, more resilient, and sustainable Gulf region. GSP’s learning outcomes include knowledge of the Gulf region, multidisciplinary and integrative learning, intercultural knowledge and competencies, social responsibility and ethical reasoning, innovation and entrepreneurialism, and Gulf impact project.
