CulturaGo is pleased to announce that our Summer Grant 2024 is now open for applications. Off the back of the success of last year's Grant program, we are awarding 10 institutions and/or companies the opportunity to offer our online intercultural and inter-identity courses during the upcoming Summer period, as well as leading up to the start of the new academic year.

CulturaGo exists to share the power of intercultural and inter-identity skills with the world.

By honing these skills, students cultivate career-critical and sought-after abilities that ensure their success, extending beyond their international education but also as they enter the world of work.

This is achieved through our suite of destination-specific cultural preparation courses and CulturaSkills, the world’s most compact intercultural and inter-identity training course.

As part of our commitment to making these resources available to a wider range of students, and working with like-minded parties who believe that intercultural and inter-identity skills are the keys to successful international education experiences, we have launched the second iteration of our Summer Grant: The CulturaGo Summer Grant 2024.

We invite institutions and organizations involved in international education to apply for our Grant, the recipients of which will be able to offer their students free access to all CulturaGo courses for a limited amount of time.

*For full-time degree-seeking students only.


What is included? 

The 10 institutions or organizations that will be selected to partner with us through the CulturaGo Summer Grant 2024, will receive: 

  • Up to 1000 logins (valued at $40,000.00) to the CulturaGo platform, which includes 5 destination-specific cultural preparation courses and CulturaSkills.
  • Logins are available for students departing on short-term programs between March 31 to July 31, 2024, and for those arriving inbound for full-time degree programs starting between March 31 and September 30, 2024.
  • Once the login is redeemed, students will have lifetime access to the CulturaGo platform.
  • Supporting content and material used to seamlessly integrate the courses into your programs and courses. 
  • Insight into the learner's experience and impact of the CulturaGo courses. 
  • Each learner will receive a completion certificate upon successful completion of the course.
