We have deeply valued our partnership with Pennsylvania State University over the past two years and hope to continue this partnership in the program's third year.

These enrichment activities have been designed to help foster and enhance the Cargill Global Scholars' leadership potential and critical thinking skills, and equip them with the tools necessary for becoming global leaders and decision makers.
