Costa Rica is one of the most beautiful countries in the world. Explore the verdant cloud forests and tropical coastlines of the Central American country while immersing yourself in the Spanish language. Classes are taught at the prestigious Universidad Latina de Costa Rica, a private university with an actual campus, which is often a rarity in Latin America. Students really get to become part of Costa Rican student life on this program. In addition to the academics, we include cultural activities on the weekdays, and excursions to different parts of the country on the weekends. The program also includes volunteer and community service experiences. You will live with one of our carefully selected host families and our onsite director will be available for you 24-7.
We want to give back to every single community our students come from and make study abroad available to students that want to better their Spanish language skills and have a desire to learn and explore other cultures. The goal of our annual scholarships is to allow students who would not be able to participate in a Study Abroad & Spanish Immersion program do so. We want to make study abroad available to students of all ethnic and cultural backgrounds. If you feel you are a student that meets this profile, please apply. You must meet the Sol Education Abroad eligibility requirements.
