Dear Students and Parents,
San Lorenzo Valley HS has been extremely fortunate to be awarded a scholarship for one student to attend a two week long Global Prep Study Abroad trip this summer through AFS! There are global prep offerings in places like Greece, Nepal, Hungary, Africa, Spain and others….
The scholarship includes a fully funded two week trip of the students choice of one of the Global prep events. The scholarship covers everything except the flight to the gateway location in the US. So depending on which program the winner chooses, they may either leave from LAX, NY, or Miami. The scholarship covers all food, travel within the host country and any events etc.. while on program. Students will be able to choose either a home stay or be in a dorm setting. Souvenirs and other extra expenses will not be covered.
