Applications to become a Global Sibling for the 2017 – 2018 academic year are currently being accepted! Applications are accepted on a rolling basis, but it is to your advantage to apply early. The number of siblings that we can select is limited and the selection process is very competitive, so make sure to draft thoughtful and complete answers on the application.

What is the commitment for a Global Sibling?

Global siblings are expected to:

·          Attend a mandatory orientation session at the beginning of the fall quarter on Saturday, October 28th from 10 AM – 5 PM.

·          Meet with your sibling a minimum of twice a month. This is an equal relationship; both siblings need to make an effort to consistently meet with one another. You must meet with your sibling a minimum of once a month, but more often is highly encouraged!

·          Attend a minimum of 2 Global Sibling events per quarter, which will be organized by your Global Siblings coordinator.

Important: There are no financial obligations required of this position.

Dear Mr. Ericksen:

First I'd like to thank you for directing such an amazing place as Dashew Center, I as an international student appreciate all your work and programs. I'm writing you to give you some feedback about the trip to Yosemite. This was the best trip ever, I'm really glad you are looking into new directions to integrate international students and this trip has been my best experience at UCLA (I'm starting my third year as a graduate student). Jennie and all her staff organized perfectly this trip. The hotel was good as well as all the activites they programmed. My expectations were completely overcome by their work. Not only we had an amazing time, they always tried to integrate everyone to form one group. We worked as a team and now I think that all of us will never forget this three lovely persons that made this trip a reallity. Thank you very much.
