Zambia Global Health Summer Program
Applications for Summer 2018 are now open.
Note: You may only apply to ONE Global Health Minor Summer Program (India, Tanzania or Zambia).
How do I apply?
Application information for the 2018 Zambia Summer Program will be posted in the "How to Apply" section when made available.
How much does the trip cost?
The total cost of the Zambia Program will be approximately $5000-6000. This includes visa, airfare, room and board for 8 weeks, and a Peace Corps excursion. We do not want the cost of the program to prevent any interested and qualified students from applying. Students who qualify for financial aid may be eligible for a scholarship through the Global Health Program. Students can also refer to the Funding Sources for Field Experience for more ways to fund your summer in Zambia.
Where would I be living?
Students will be living with home stay families during their 8 weeks in Lusaka. Family homes are comfortable, with showers, western toilets, and sinks.
What would I do during my free time?
Lusaka is a thriving city with great cultural activities and places to visit. Students going to the markets, cultural villages, restaurants, sports events, festivals, and more. Students can also take their weekends to visit a nearby elephant orphanage, game parks, and one of the seven natural wonders of the world, Victoria Falls.
What are the 2015 program dates?
This year's Global Health Program in Zambia dates have yet to be determined.
