Global Cultures, Foreign Languages and International Perspectives

Now is the time. Memphis is the place. 

Hosted by the University of Memphis since 1986, the Governor's School for International Studies (GSIS) is a four-week on-campus program for highly-motivated and academically-talented rising high school juniors and seniors located in a city that has changed the world in more ways than one. Memphis sits at the crossroads of international commerce, culture, and creativity. Memphians don't sit around and wait for things to happen; they jump in and get their hands dirty. Learn more about the program here. 

For the upcoming 2021 program, held from June 19 to July 17, 64 students will have the opportunity for a full scholarship supporting tuition for a 3-credit college course, non-credit language course, housing, meals and co-curricular activities during the month-long program.
