Cooperative Study Abroad Program

CATIE invites groups from universities worldwide to participate in its exciting Cooperative Study Abroad Program (CSAP) based in Costa Rica. A growing number of well-known North American and European universities have discovered that this program offers their students the type of international experience they seek.

Located in the beautiful Turrialba Valley, CATIE provides participants in CSAP an invaluable perspective on sustainability and an understanding of the critical economic, social and environmental challenges facing rural people seeking to apply environmentally sound management of natural resources and agricultural systems.
