Faculty-Led Study Abroad

Project Information

We are looking for high school, community college, and university faculty and staff to lead Study Abroad trips and provide for-credit courses through their educational institution abroad. The educators will come for free if hosting a group of over 12 participants. Hibiscus would provide all necessary logistics of the program. This includes: transportation, lodging and meals, providing a proper space to give courses, any field-study excursion desired, and in-country support. We have offered Faculty-Led Study Abroad programs for both lower and upper degrees with various Universities based within the United States and are happy to give recommendations as requested.

Volunteer's Role

Where will WE stay?

Participants have the option to either stay with well-screened host families or at our headquarters depending mainly on availability and preference. Should participants have a preference, they should let our in-country coordinator know as soon as possible-in their application. We try to accommodate preferences. Host Families are well-screened and offer participants a shared bathroom, private bedroom, electricity, and running water.Headquarters housing offers participants shared bathrooms, hostel-style bedrooms, electricity, running water, and WiF.Participants receive three light traditional meals per day at either accommodations.

What will we eat?

Participants will be given 3 meals per day. Keep in mind that food will be typical Costa Rican food, so participants may want to bring snacks like granola or protein bars with them to the project site.

What Will our Schedule Look like?

This will be dependent on how many credits and courses are offered, as well as excursions desired.

What can we do in our freetime?

Yes! Not only will you be located in a beautiful part of Costa Rica, close to nature, we can also work with your group to schedule planned activities.
