The student's primary residence at the time of application must be served by JPEC, and the JPEC account must be in the name of the student's parent or guardian. Students who are interested in applying should check this webpage in January to download an application.
All expenses for the tour (except personal items such as souvenirs) will be paid by the co-op. Chaperones will be provided by sponsoring cooperatives.
