Applications are now open for Honors summer study abroad programs in India and Brazil.
Both programs are presented as a collaboration between the WVU Honors College and Amizade, WVU’s global service learning partner. Interested students can apply through the Office of International Programs website at http://studyabroad.wvu.edu
The Brazil program runs through the second half of May, 2014, and is designed for Honors Pre-Health majors. The program will explore issues in global healthcare, Brazilian culture, and the ethics of service learning. The group will spend just over two weeks in Santarem, Brazil, learning, exploring and volunteering. At the center of the trip is a six-day trip up the Trombetas river, a tributary of the Amazon, where students will shadow Brazilian nurses and medical students as they deliver clinical services to isolated Quilombo populations. The cost of the program is $4300.
The India Program runs for three weeks in July, and is open to all majors. Focusing on Indian culture and global citizenship, students will travel through cities like Chennai and an Puducherry as well as small villages in the southeastern Indian state of Tamil Nadu. Central to this program is an opportunity to volunteer at a leadership camp working with Indian Dalit children. The cost of this program is $6,250.
