We know that hands-on research experiences increase competence. Therefore, we strive to connect AMP Scholars to quality domestic and international research experiences. 

The Costa Rica International Research Experience (CRIRE) is a program offered in conjunction with the All Nations Alliance for Minority Participation (ANAMP) and the Organization for Tropical Studies (OTS). The goal of CRIRE is to exchange research skills for students, enhance research and mentoring skills for faculty researchers, improve the participation rate in longer research programs by exposing students to a short term project, and the development of cultural capital of participants through cross-cultural and cross-institutional experiences.

Resilience through intercultural skills enhancement

Resilience through Intercultural Skill Enhancement is an educational offering that imparts intercultural knowledge and skills to AMP Scholars. It will help students quickly recover from the difficulties they face when encountering cultural differences and change.
