A friend and I are both currently freshmen and we would like to do something exciting and productive with part of our summer. Furthermore, we both enjoy international travel and culture. Both cost and the reputation of the program are concerns. We don't want to be trapped by one of those commercial "enrichment" programs that are more or less glorified vacations. While this is not a prime motive, something that would look appealing on a resume would be a welcomed addition. A program below the $1500 mark would also be a plus. We both hold a grade point average above a 3.0 and, if this matters at all, go to well respected academic institutions.
