International Development Summer Institute – Africa Program (IDSI-AP)

A Service Learning and Training Program for Undergraduates

The International Development Summer Institute – Africa Program (IDSI-AP) provides students with the opportunity to have an applied learning and cultural experience abroad. The program consists of 5-weeks of pre-program preparation at Penn and a 4-week long training program on the campus of Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology (KNUST) in Kumasi, Ghana.    


Cooperating with KNUST and several Non-Governmental Organizations (NGOs), ISDI-AP gives students the chance to apply classroom learning in the field and gain an insight into the world of international development.
