Travel and housing
Students are responsible for arranging air travel to and from Montego Bay, Jamaica. Our community partner provides all in-country travel, including travel from Montego Bay to Petersfield. Students should plan to arrive on the morning of January 3. We will leave Petersfield on January 21.
Engaged Student Travel Grants can provide up to $750 in travel funds. Their application deadline is October 10. To apply, visit engaged.cornell.edu/funding/studenttravelgrant as soon as possible.
Visas are not necessary for U.S. passport holders traveling to Jamaica.
All housing will be provided by our community partner in homestays in Petersfield. Students will eat the majority of their meals in the homes and usually find the homestay to be one of the best parts of the program.
