Study Abroad with G-RAP
G-RAP sets itself apart from the other RAPs at CU-Boulder in its avid promotion of study abroad. Each May, the program sends 15-20 students on an international service trip, an opportunity available exclusively to G-RAP participants. Additionally, the associate director leads a short-term study abroad program in the summer. This CU Global Seminar offers students three upper division CU Boulder credits, and qualified G-RAP students receive priority consideration, as well as have access to special scholarships.
G-RAP encourages students to begin considering semester and year-length study abroad programs as early as their first year.

Volunteer Service Trip to Fiji – May 12-23, 2014
G-RAP will host its fourth annual service trip in May 2014. This year, the group will be traveling to Fiji to assist in community development projects, volunteer at a primary school, and lead activities for local children. Participants will live with local families for much of the trip, and will have the opportunity snorkel above diverse reefs and hike to scenic waterfalls. This short-term experience is an excellent introduction to the world of study abroad for first-year students, and energizes students to pursue semester or year-length study abroad programs in subsequent years at CU.
