Steps to CARES Project Admittance:

  • Submit the CARES Project Program Application below.

  • You will receive an email with link to submit the $50 application fee to begin processing your application.

  • Once your application has been processed, we will schedule a Skype video introduction. Each mentee is an important part of our team, therefore, Dr. C believes in making contact personally, and answer any questions you may have.

  • Within a week of the Skype video introduction, you will receive a notice of your acceptance status. Since admission is rolling until spaces are filled, accepted students are required to submit the deposit within 10 days of acceptance notice to hold your place in the program. You will then receive the Preparation Guide to plan your trip!
