Thank you again for choosing AMPED to organize your cultural immersion experience abroad.

Our application process is simple. Just access our online application via the link below and submit it along with the $250 non-refundable application fee. Note: Participants should apply at least 2 months in advance to allow for proper planning and placement. While it may be possible to process some applications on shorter notice, an expedited fee will apply.

From there the process flows like this:
  • Upon receipt of the application and application fee, we will review your application for completeness and eligibility.

  • Once you are approved, you will receive an email from AMPED confirming your acceptance and informing you that your application has been sent to our local partners to arrange your placement. Depending on the time of year, it may take anywhere from 2-4 weeks to arrange your placement.

  • After your placement has been arranged, you will receive information concerning your placement via email, including project information, in-country partner contact details, airport arrival, packing recommendations, program fee invoice, as well as other important and useful information. It is each participant's responsibility to notify AMPED regarding any changes to their contact information.

  • Okay, you now have your placement information. At this time, you may schedule your flight. If you have not done so already, you should apply for your passport (and visa if required,) and obtain any necessary vaccinations. It is the participant's responsibility to research what form of documentation and vaccinations are needed.

  • Flights and tours may be booked through The Travel Pearl (www.thetravelpearl.com), our preferred travel service provider, or any other travel service provider of your choice.

  • Now that you have booked your flight, you should be sure to forward your official flight itinerary to our office so arrangements for airport pick-up can be made on your behalf.

  • Finally, the program fee must be paid in full in order to secure your placement and to avoid cancellation. Payments should be made in full at least 21 business days prior to your departure. If the application is received within less than 30 days prior to the project start date, the full payment is due immediately.

  • Now you are all set to go! While your in-country coordinator will be your primary point of contact during your stay, please do not hesitate to contact our office should you need any additional assistance. Enjoy your journey!
