International Participants (if you do not reside in Costa Rica) it is the responsibility of each participant to find out if you need a Visa to enter Costa Rica. In case that you need a visa, we recommend that you apply immediately. DO NOT WAIT UNTIL THE LAST MINUTE IF THIS APPLIES TO YOU! Once your application is received AWOW and CATIE University will provide you with an invitation letter.
A-WOW cannot make personal phone calls or requests on your behalf to specific Embassies or Consulates. Interference with the diplomatic and consular affairs by a host organization is not permissible, and reliance on such phone calls may slow your application process as well as decrease your chances of obtaining a visa. Applying to the A-WOW Young Women Leadership Summit does not guarantee that you will be granted the visa. Such decision depends on various factors determined by the Embassies or Consulates. Travel Arrangements It is the responsibility of each participant to arrange their own travel bookings (such as flight, airport transportation).

For Financial Support:
Registrants are invited to utilize Fund Raising that may help with self-funding efforts. Otherwise, due to the extremely high cost of organizing, the use of various facilities, insurance, and fees, no other financial support is available through A-WOW Inc. for any travel. We suggest you check local organizations and associations such as the Lions or Rotary clubs. Other delegates have found that a search through the internet, academic scholarships, local and national sources, and even friends and family relations can also be a source of subsidy and support.
