My favorite academic experience was my internship that I completed in a small village outside of Merida. I met once a week with a woman who started a fair trade co-op. By the end of the experience, I had improved my knowledge of life in her small village, her co-op, improved my Spanish speaking abilities, and made a new friendship.
One of the benefits of being a member of our Cooperative Council is having access to our travel grant program. Each year, members of our Cooperative Council are given the opportunity to apply for a $1,000 travel grant to visit one or more Central College Abroad programs.
Grant recipients pay for their travel expenses, submit receipts, and are reimbursed afterwards. Only transportation costs and hotel accommodations are eligible for reimbursement. Grant recipients are responsible for their own meals and miscellaneous expenses. Please make note of the following application criteria:
Invitations for application are emailed to members of our Cooperative Council during the spring semester.
