The experiences listed under these links are preapproved to be counted towards the GCSP program requirements. The expectation is that the student’s Gold experience, and most of the experiences overall, will have a substantial connection to the student’s selected Grand Challenge. Other experiences that meet the program learning objectives (linked to from the header for each area) may be proposed by students in the program. The time expectation for Gold experiences is equivalent to 6 credit hours (approximately 270 hours); for Silver experiences, 3 credit hours (approximately 135 hours); and for Bronze experiences, 1 credit hour (approximately 45 hours).
