Travelers on EF Study Abroad programs are now able to receive an EF/Nobel Prize Museum Global Citizen Certificate, issued by EF Education First and the Nobel Prize Museum, upon completion of a multimedia project based on their study abroad experience. The Global Citizen Project is designed to equip students with the skills to be leaders for peace and global prosperity.
By successfully completing this project, travelers will have showcased their knowledge of the global dimensions of their overseas learning program and their ability to take action to confront important global challenges via their response to a prompt. They will become part of a global community of change-makers dedicated to making the world a better, more truthful place and can use this certificate of completion in their own resumes, LinkedIn profiles, and portfolio.
The Nobel Prize Museum celebrates the world-changing ideas of the Nobel Laureates, and their commitment to making the world a better, more truthful place. How did your travel experience help you deepen your appreciation of the global dimensions of your program, uncover a truth about the world, develop a new idea, or provide you with the knowledge, skills and attitudes that will enable you to contribute to making the world a better place?
Each project will be evaluated according to an evaluation rubric. There are a maximum of 4 points available for each of the 5 elements for a maximum total score of 20. Projects must score a 12 or above to earn the certificate. Review this grading rubric as you reflect on your program and work on your submission.
We know that every learner is different when it comes to reflecting on their experience. We offer three different ways to submit your application, so you can choose which one best reflects your learning style.
Write a 1000-1500 word essay responding to the prompt and making sure to include evidence from experience. Photos may be added, if relevant to the essay.
Create a 6-8 minute video responding to the prompt, using evidence from your experience.
Create a 6-8 minute podcast answering the prompt, including examples from your experience.
Please note: the file size limit is 75MB for each of these submission types.
