Custom Programs

Custom Program Overview

The ELP has been delivering custom workshops, courses, and programs for foundations, multinational corporations, universities, and government agencies for over 30 years. We offer custom programs when our regularly scheduled programs do not take place at a convenient time of year or when our programs do not include the type of academic and sociocultural experiences that a sponsor might be seeking. We work closely with sponsors to design a program of study that fully meets the needs of the participants.

Custom programs are typically designed for groups of 15-30 participants, and are at least 2 weeks long. Most custom programs are designed for university students, teachers, or other working professionals. The cost of a custom program will vary greatly depending on factors such as the number of participants, the number and size of classes, the length and intensity of the program, and the number and type of sociocultural experiences.

Please contact Ms. Amy Nichols, Manager of International Research and Program Development to discuss potential opportunities.  If possible, please fill out and send the ELP Custom Program Questionnaire to begin planning your program.
