The VIH Program for Women and Marginalized Genders in Global Leadership prepares scholars for tomorrow's global challenges by offering a unique opportunity for global experiences, leadership development, and community service. Universities and colleges across Pennsylvania participate in the VIH Program. Three first-time women and marginalized gender travelers from each institution are admitted into the program and receive a scholarship of at least $5,000 to put toward the cost of a global experience of their choosing.  The VIH Program has four components: the global experience, the Community Engagement Experience, and two weekend-long intensive leadership development conferences. During the spring semester prior to and the fall semester following their global experiences, the awardees from each VIH institution meet in Pittsburgh, PA. These trainings provide the awardees with the foundation of skills necessary to maximize cultural learnings while abroad and to invest their leadership skills in their own communities upon their return.” Application Deadline November 1
