Study Abroad with G-RAP
G-RAP sets itself apart from the other RAPs at CU-Boulder in its avid promotion of study abroad. Both the director and associate director of G-RAP lead short-term study abroad programs in the summer. These CU Global Seminars offer students upper division CU Boulder credits, and qualified G-RAP students receive priority consideration, as well as access to special scholarships.
G-RAP encourages students to begin considering semester and year-length study abroad programs as early as their first year.
