WCATY and the Division of International Studies have partnered to design a program to bring the world's brightest minds together to investigate global issues - the Global Wisconsin Idea Program (GWIP). GWIP brings American and international students into the same program to live and learn together. Boy and RobotStudents will work in small teams that nurture cross-cultural creativity. In a global knowledge economy, GWIP offers the unique chance for students to match minds and skills with students from all over the globe. Program staff will bring a similar cross-national perspective and expand students’ global awareness and understanding.

GWIP is a summer institute for academically-talented high school students to engage in one of the world’s most interesting challenges: understanding the changing relationships between human actions and earth’s complex environmental systems. Students in this exciting program will learn how to integrate the latest science into real-world decision-making and creative problem solving, with the ultimate goal of sustainably managing our planet’s natural resources the air, water, land, and biological diversity upon which all life depends. Students will also participate in workshops and seminars offered by Wisconsin Institutes for Discovery researchers, faculty, and staff with a focus on sustainability, creativity, and innovation.

Learn what being a global citizen in the 21st century really means!


"This program will challenge high school students academically while acclimating them to the college environment. It is an excellent opportunity for students to demonstrate that they are ready for the challenges of college work." - Adele C. Brumfield, Director of Undergraduate Admissions, University of Wisconsin-Madison
