Financial Aid

The course taught during the program is considered a spring course at UNCW, and thus students are encouraged to apply for and use financial assistance, including scholarships. For more information on scholarship opportunities, see your financial aid advisor and the UNCW Office of International Programs website.

Excursions and Special Events

In order to offer a wider perspective of Oaxacan life, the program includes excursions to sites of historical and cultural interest, including trips to Teotitlán del Valle, Mitla, Hierve el Agua, and Monte Albán. Also included is a day-trip to two villages with the non-profit En Via. These activities are included in the price of the program (although some meals during excursions are not covered).
