Global Studies Benefit Fellowships: Iluméxico

Global Studies Benefit Fellows:  Iluméxico:  promotes community development through energy access with solar powered home systems in rural communities. These juniors have been empowered to help social enterprises in Spanish-speaking countries with the Spanish skills they've developed here at SCU. How can you use your Spanish skills to make the world a better place?

“GSBF is a rigorous but rewarding program, that exposes you to not only different business models and ways of thinking, but it does so in a very multinational setting. I had the opportunity to go to Mexico and work for the solar enterprise ILUMÉXICO which provides solar home systems to rural communities without light. Overall, it was a great cultural and learning experience!” -Isabel Miranda

“GSBF has been the most challenging experience I've had at SCU--not only was I able to work in a foreign country, I was also able to practice my Spanish in both business and casual contexts. As difficult as it was, this experience opened my eyes too in many unexpected ways!”  -Maddie Nguyen
