Thank You for Choosing AMPED Abroad!

Our application process is simple. Just access our online application via the link below and submit it along with the $250 non-refundable application fee.


Note: You should apply at least 2 months in advance to allow for proper planning and placement. While it may be possible to process some applications on shorter notice, an expedited fee does apply.

Upon receipt of the application and application fee

We will review your application for completeness and eligibility.

After you are approved

You receive an email from us confirming your acceptance and informing you that your application was sent to our local partners to help arrange your placement. Depending on the time of year, it may take anywhere from 2-4 weeks to arrange your placement.

After your placement is set up

We email your placement information. This includes project information, in-country partner contact details, airport arrival, packing recommendations, program fee invoice, as well as other important and useful information. Note: It is your responsibility to notify us regarding any changes to your contact information.

After you receive your placement information

You can book your airfare. If you have not done so already, you should apply for your passport (and visa, if required), and obtain any necessary vaccinations. You are responsible for researching what form of documentation is required and which vaccinations are needed.

Forward your official flight itinerary to our office.

When we receive your flight information, airport pick-up arrangements are made on your behalf.

Finally, the program fee must be paid in full in order to secure your placement and to avoid cancellation.

Payments must be made in full at least 21 business days prior to your departure. If the application is received less than 30 days prior to the project start date, the full payment is due immediately.

You're are all set to go!

While your in-country coordinator is your first line of contact during your stay, please do not hesitate to contact our office should you need any additional assistance.Also, be on the lookout for periodic emails as we make efforts to confirm and make sure everything is going well. Enjoy your adventure!
