Service-Learning or Volunteering Abroad
Volunteering and service-learning are great ways to explore the world. Not only will you be making a difference by donating your time and expertise, but you will also be able to experience a country’s culture and customs in ways that others do not. Please note: for non-credit bearing programs, federal financial aid (loans and grants) cannot be used; however scholarships and fundraising are options.
It is becoming increasingly popular to combine a service learning or volunteer project with a CSU education abroad experience.
