We’re very excited to introduce and welcome our team of official bloggers and vloggers for spring 2021!

This semester, we have a mix of in-country and remote bloggers and vloggers sharing their unique experience either from their host countries and at-home locations. Each of them will receive a grant while they are studying with CAPA to help them generate their stories here on CAPA World. From pre-departure thoughts through their reflection upon the end of their semesters, we will watch the stories of these students unfold as they learn about their host country, explore and discover the real city beyond stereotypes and expectations, interact with locals, focus on their academics, and complete internships.

So who are they and where are they going?
