William & Mary values diversity in our university community and students from abroad are an important part of that diversity. To advance the diversity of our global student community, the Reves Center for International Studies administers the Global Ambassador Scholarships to incoming freshmen and undergraduate transfer students from abroad who are permanent residents of select countries/regions of world that are underrepresented in the W&M student body. These competitive, one-time scholarships range from $5,000 to $10,000 and are made possible by the generosity of donors who have given to support our global student community.
