Fifteen students will be selected for the camp and the application deadline is July 5. Students can apply at

Bradley Rediger, graduate assistant for the Office of Study Abroad, said the World Leaders Camp is a valuable opportunity.

“I believe this event is great for any incoming freshman who is globally conscious and likes learning through interactive activities and experiences,” he said. “Perhaps best of all, participants will have the opportunity to make great friends before move-in day in August.”

Participation is free and open to all incoming UNK freshmen. Students who attend the camp will receive on-campus lodging plus three meals each day. All of the transportation associated with the camp and admission to events and exhibits is provided. Students will also have the opportunity to experience professional intercultural seminars as well as international activities and field trips.
