We are committed to keeping the Transcending Borders Student Leadership Program financially reasonable for all students. Our goal is to have a diverse group of students, representing universities from across the country. We whole-heartedly believe that any and all students should have this type of experience, especially those interested in developing leadership skills, while having an in-depth cultural immersion experience and enrolled in an academic program that is both relevant and meaningful to local communities and students.
To achieve this, we provide the Transcending Borders scholarship program, focused on recruiting students who have an interest and focus on service, community and leadership. The scholarship awards $4,000, reducing the program fee from $10,600 to $6,600. The fee includes tuition for 13 credits awarded by the first University of the America’s, Universidad Autónoma de Santo Domingo UASD, housing, three meals a day, medical insurance, trip excursions during class instruction and transportation to and from the airport upon arrival and departure from the Dominican Republic. To apply, please fill out the scholarship application, which is attached to the Transcending Borders application.
