    • Participant training requirements
    • Promotion & recruiting strategies
    • Application personalization
    • Academic options & course registration strategy
    • Miscellaneous needs (passports/visas, insurance, background checks, specific vendor requirements, etc.)

  3. After the Trip Agreement has been signed, promotion & recruiting for the trip can begin. Students will also be able to apply for the trip at this point.
