Study Abroad Winter 2020 in India! GCIL Info Sessions

Grand Challenges Impact Lab study abroad program is recruiting students!

Interested in a study abroad program that offers hands-on, project-based learning about Grand Challenges and social innovation that will also build your resume? Grand Challenges Impact Lab (GCIL), a UW study abroad program in Bangalore, India, is recruiting students for their Winter 2020 program!

Grand Challenges (GCs) are the big problems facing humanity – things like food security, clean water, climate change, low-income housing, education in disadvantaged communities, and access to health care. GCIL empowers students to address GCs. Through GCIL, interdisciplinary teams of 4-5 students are placed in a local organization with experience with a GC and are challenged to propose, test, and prototype solutions using tools of entrepreneurship and social innovation. Read about past team projects and watch video summaries here:
