GCIL 2023 is recruiting students!

Interested in a study abroad program that offers hands-on, project-based learning about Grand Challenges and social innovation?
Grand Challenges Impact Lab (GCIL)<https://www.gcil.uw.edu/>, a UW study abroad program in Bangalore, India, is recruiting students for their Winter 2023 program!

Grand Challenges (GCs) are the big problems facing humanity - things like food security, clean water, climate change, low-income housing, education in disadvantaged communities, and access to health care. GCIL empowers students to address GCs. Through GCIL, interdisciplinary teams of 4 students are placed in a local organization with experience with a GC and are challenged to propose, test, and prototype solutions using tools of entrepreneurship and social innovation.
