Global Leadership

The Posey Global Leadership Fellows Program seeks to cultivate the next generation of global leaders by promoting innovative experiential and research opportunities anywhere in the world.


For some students, international travel sparks a desire for something more. More than just an interest in travel, more than an interest in a particular country. In some, it ignites a passion. The Posey Global experience gives students a chance to act on that passion while developing leadership skills.

Posey Global offers Alma students a scholarship to travel anywhere in the world and complete a project of their own design, thanks to a generous gift of over $2 million from alumni Lee and Sally Posey.

Projects include:

  • Non-profit internships
  • Independent research projects
  • Seminars
  • Conferences
  • Work related to global issues

Alma students have completed projects in topics ranging from teaching to public policy, in places from the Philippines to South Africa.
