Global Social Impact Fellows are a cohort of undergraduate and graduate students who address sustainable development challenges in low-resource countries. GSIFs advance their projects in the Spring and Fall semesters, and in the summer, travel for 2-3 weeks of fieldwork. The courses, workshops, retreats, and immersive experiences of this program integrate experiential learning, research, and entrepreneurial engagement with students leading original and ambitious projects with in-country partners in diverse countries. Projects are mentored by Lehigh faculty with students making substantial intellectual contributions along the way.
