Global LEAD has just announced three $1,000 scholarships to both Greece and Ecuador for summer 2012. Students can expect a life-altering summer traveling abroad full of backpacking adventures and international service.

Studying abroad in Ecuador will allow you to spend the summer outdoors horseback riding, mountain biking and whitewater rafting in the Amazon. While in Ecuador, you will explore colonial Quito and work with a local elementary school helping to develop after school programs.

Studying abroad in Greece will allow you to explore the entire country with time in Athens, Crete and Santorini.  While in Greece, island hop, discover the birthplace of democracy and let’s not forget about the opportunity to go cliff-jumping into the Mediterranean.
