GRCS' 4th Project Passport Africa (Uganda/Rwanda) 2024
For a fourth year, Galapagos is excited to offer a great opportunity for Galapagos alum entering their Junior or Senior years in 2024. Project Passport Africa at Galapagos will bring up to six GRCS alum to Africa. This trip combines learning about east African culture  with a leadership retreat. Alum will get the chance to visit Uganda and Rwanda.  There, they will meet and work with Africans their own age and visit locations that will expand their horizons.

The trip will take place in June 2024 and will require some pre-work and fundraising.  Scholars will work together at the summit in Uganda while also having time to explore the region.  Scholars will visit a Ugandan market-place, meet with village elders and spend time on a safari and participate in a three-day youth summit.  Finally, scholars will visit neighboring Rwanda to learn about the genocide that enveloped that nation in the 1990’s while discovering how the nation undertook one of the more successful reconciliations displayed by humanity in the 2000’s.

Application are accepted on a rolling basis and will be reviewed on a first come first serve basis.   First deadline is December 1, 2023.
