Personal and contact information
2 short written responses about your motivations for attending the program. The questions and space for your response are included in the application itself.

Note that your information will only be shared within our organization and partners. All applications are due January 31, 2021. You will be notified about your application by February 28.
Passport and Visa
All participants must have a valid passport at the time of the program. Additionally, unless you are a Ghanaian citizen, you will have to procure a visa to enter the country.
Our team can help you along the way with both of these processes. However, it is your responsibility to apply for and procure these documents in time for your trip.
In addition to a visa and passport, you must get a yellow fever vaccine before entering Ghana. Please contact your local health system for information about getting vaccinated.
You will also need to take anti-malarial medication while in Ghana. Talk to your doctor or pharmacist about getting a prescription.
