Grand Challenges Impact Lab (GCIL) is recruiting students for Study Abroad in India in Winter 2024. Please apply!

GCIL-India offers hands-on, project-based learning about Grand Challenges and social innovation. 

Applications are due mid-May (soon!). Scholarships are available; for many people, the cost of going to India may be less than the cost of staying in Seattle.

See the world and learn how to solve real-world problems. We are excited to help you create solutions that can make a difference. We hope you will consider applying!


GCIL includes a 1-credit Autumn-quarter course in Seattle, and a 10-week, 15-credit Winter-quarter course (January – March 2024) in Bangalore, India. 

The program cost is approximately $7,000. For many UW students, this is less expensive than if you stay in Seattle. UW Study Abroad offers substantial scholarships. If you have financial aid at UW, it generally applies to study abroad.

GCIL is open to junior and senior undergraduate students and graduate students from any discipline.
