We’re serious about community! We know finances vary, and professional opportunities are expensive. We operate a “pay what you can” (PWYC) policy for our events, so we are always financially accessible.
We give to the causes that matter. Ten percent of program registration fees on some URep Abroad programs have gone to a great cause! URep Abroad has donated to post bail/bond for immigration detention centers and increased access to COVID-19 vaccines for low- and middle-income economies.
