Given the growing spread of COVID-19, expanded travel restrictions aimed at containing the virus, and the general uncertainty regarding timelines for the lifting of travel restrictions, the School of Arts and Sciences has decided to suspend all Penn Summer Abroad programs for summer 2020.
Travel to Gondar, Ethiopia to collaborate with 2,000 Ethiopian Jewish children to make a film about their community. After a week of pre-departure training and context, we will spend two weeks in northern Ethiopia teaching filmmaking classes and working with a community that has been at the center of intense debates about migration for decades.
The running of this program is contingent upon grant funding. Students applying to this program should be aware that the program will not run unless this funding is secured. Students will be notified of the status of the funding as soon as possible. This will likely occur after the March 31 deadline.
This program is exclusively for Penn undergraduate students.
