CulturaGo Grant Summer ‘23: Making Cultural Preparation Accessible

Mar 14, 2023
CulturaGo Grant Summer '23

At CulturaGo we believe that everyone deserves the opportunity to have an enriching international education experience. To achieve our aim we have designed comprehensive pre-departure online courses tailored for students and professionals traveling to the UK, South Korea, Japan, Italy and Spain - with more to come.

In line with our efforts to expand access to our resources, we have developed the CulturaGo Grant. This program offers those involved in international education the opportunity to apply and provide their students, for a set period, with free access to our courses. 

In this blog post, you will learn more about what the CulturaGo Grant entails and the benefits of our courses for your students and your institution.

CulturaGo Grant Summer ‘23: Making Cultural Preparation Accessible

At CulturaGo, we believe in using education to promote cultural awareness and increase understanding and empathy, leading to more respectful and meaningful cultural exchanges. We aim to give students abroad the confidence to take the leap and deeply connect with people, places and cultures. With the CulturaGo Grant, we hope to make our courses accessible to a wider range of students. 


Who Should Apply for the CulturaGo Grant? 

We are looking for applications from institutions and organizations in the following categories who understand the importance of cultural preparation and want to support their students’ experiences abroad, but currently may lack the necessary financial resources or funds.

  • State Universities
  • Minority-serving colleges and universities (MSIs)
  • Liberal Arts Colleges 
  • Community Colleges 
  • Consortiums 
  • Nonprofit companies 
  • Private Colleges and Universities
  • Private companies, e.g. Study Abroad providers

Applicants will need to demonstrate that there is a need within their student body for destination-specific intercultural and inter-identity resources, as well as how they will integrate these effectively into their programs. 

In particular, we want to support institutions that run initiatives aimed at empowering students from under-estimated backgrounds, such as women and gender non-conforming individuals, first-generation students, BIPOC students, including Latinx, Asian and Native Hawaiian / Pacific Islander students; and students part of the LGBTQIA2S+ community. 


Why Apply for the CulturaGo Grant? 

We are proud to partner with universities and travel institutions around the world, equipping their students or applicants with the knowledge and tools they need to have positive and fulfilling international experiences. We have received positive feedback from both students and partners who have used and implemented our courses.
