Study

The Awaken Study Abroad Program offers a wide range a programs that touch on leadership, intercultural disciplines, and communicational competencies.

Why is Ecuador the perfect setting to study abroad? Because this small but impressive country incorporates everything participants will be looking for: with its four climate zones, abundance of flora and fauna, and commitment to preserving indigenous culture, Ecuador is the ultimate metaphor for exploration, diversity and multiculturalism itself.
