What is the IP?

The International Plan is Georgia Tech's globally-focused degree designation, recognizing students who have committed to making global competence a core part of their GT experience. Read More

Why is global competency important?

Employers are making it clear that they are looking for graduates who are not only talented in their fields, but who can also work in diverse groups, adapt quickly to new cultures, and contribute to global expansion efforts. Through the IP, undergraduate students have the opportunity to gain significant international experience, language proficiency, and intercultural aptitude as part of their degree requirements, making them ideal candidates for competitive positions in today's global economy.

Scholarships and Funding

The IP Scholarship is now available to students participating in the International Plan who will be completing their second IP term abroad. The scholarship is meant to help offset the travel costs associated with an international experience, and students must meet all the listed requirements in order to be eligible.
