Participating students, with the consent of their university advisers, apply academic concepts in GK communities and develop research materials and projects that will be used to improve the quality of life for people in need. These projects address a variety of topics related to, but not limited to, poverty eradication such as urban planning, education, hunger mitigation, environmental and health sustainability and social entrepreneurship. Participants are highly encouraged to craft a report and present their work at the end of the program.
