Bridge to Prosperity (B2P) UIUC Bolivia Project Summer 2018 Application

The Surujmachi Community Bridge Project is a 3-5 week bridge construction project, taking place in Bolivia and beginning on May 14 and ending on June 16, 2018 (tentatively). The Bridges to Prosperity chapter at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign (UIUC B2P) is seeking students to participate in the design and/or the construction of the bridge.

Note: Applying to participate in design/travel does not necessarily require previous design/travel experience. We are looking for a combination of more and less experienced team members to develop future project leaders.

To be considered during the travel team selection process, submit a completed application by the end of the day on Wednesday, January 24, 2018.
