GOAL AND IMPACT
The main aim of Project Arizona is to provide ten participants (of age 20 to 30) with a unique program that will empower them to became stronger and more efficient in their professional lives after they come back home. Our project will also expose you to American values, history, free market economic system, and founding fathers' principles. We guarantee you meaningful internships, educational training, community service and living experience in Arizona. This only assures that Project Arizona will keep you busy in the best possible sense of that word.
Duration of the PA semester: February 20, 2017 – June 30, 2017
Project Arizona has an ambition to be a life changing experience that will give you inspiration and necessary tools to enhance your career. It is a big promise but we are not hesitant to give it, since we are offering a project which is a combination of meaningful work training, high quality education, and community service. And not only that. It's very important to stress that Arizona is the place where powerful ideas of freedom are implemented to reality and that example is extremely inspirational. Our "Meet AZ" series of informal meetings with state key figures (including businessmen, politicians, think-tank leaders, journalists) will give you a unique occasion to expand your professional network and benefit from it.
Project Arizona – it's a really good deal.
"Wait – what did you say? It costs 5900 US dollars! How is that a good deal?" – You may ask. Well, you heard that right – when it comes to education, experience and living in US, it is hard to find a better deal than Project Arizona – here's why.
5900 US dollars is not the final price. We are in the advanced stage of looking for donators, who will contribute money for the purpose of scholarships, which will lower the participation cost. We guarantee that every student will get between 1000 up to 2500 US Dollars in scholarships.
Every participant will recieve at least 300$/month pocket money from each internship provider.
You don't need to worry about the cost of flight tickets to US and back home, accomodation for 4 months and insurance – it is all included in the participation fee.
You have probably heard about the high cost of college education in the United States – well, not in Project Arizona! The comprehensive academic seminar at the ASU together with a graduation certificate and possibility to attend weekly public policy workshops are included in the price.
When it comes to food prices, Phoenix is pretty cheap, compared to the rest of United States.
Still not convinced? Take a look at the estimation below:
The approximate value of all the elements is 10 000 US dollars.
But at Project Arizona, thanks to our wide net of partners, the cost for the whole programme is 5900$. And don't forget – you will receive pocket money (at least 300$ a month) from your internship providers and there are scholarships to come – we will inform about them very soon.
