The Tyler Junior College Travel Studies Program is giving students the chance to take an early summer trip to Costa Rica. 

John Hays, a professor of Spanish/department chair, said “it’s a great opportunity for real-world experience and experiencing different cultures than your own.” 

The trip will include sightseeing, shopping, different cuisines and more. There is also a chance for a student to apply for a partial scholarship of $1,000. 

The submission deadline is Jan. 31, 2020. It will be a selective trip so students will be chosen by a committee and notified by Feb. 6, 2020. 

It is a 10-day trip starting May 11 all the way till May 20. The cost of the trip is $2,300 per person, based on double occupancy. 

The first deposit is $100 and will be due Nov. 26, 2019, this will not be refundable. The second deposit is $1,000 and is due by Jan. 31, 2020. The final/full payment will be due Feb. 11, 2020.
