The Wisconsin International Scholars (WISc) Program brings together undergraduates who have interests in global affairs, cultures, and languages. Students apply before coming to campus, and participate throughout their undergraduate careers.

First-Year Interest Groups (FIGs) are learning communities that enable freshmen to meet peers with similar interests and to connect with faculty in small, seminar environments. Several FIGs each year have an international focus.
