International Students & Scholars

GW Exchange Students at the Cherry Blossom Festival

For generations, GW has welcomed students and scholars from across the globe to our campuses and to Washington, D.C., one of the world’s great capital cities. In addition to easy access to the D.C. area's many political, cultural, scientific, and economic institutions, we enjoy an international community of more than 4,200 outstanding undergraduate and graduate students from over 130 countries and some 300 international visiting scholars seeking world-class colleagues, facilities, and resources. GW's faculty bring their academic knowledge and practical experience into the classroom, and our research centers lead consequential work in fields of international endeavor—from globalization and law to science and policy.
