The Bajo Maiz Community Bridge Project is a 4-week bridge construction project, taking place in Panama and beginning on June 3rd and ending on July 2nd, 2017. The Bridges to Prosperity chapter at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign (UIUCB2P) is seeking students to participate in the design (Spring 2017) and/or the construction of the bridge (Summer 2017).

Note: Applying to participate in design/travel does not necessarily require previous design/travel experience. We are looking for a combination of more and less experienced team members to develop future project leaders.

To be considered during the travel team selection process, submit a completed application here [https://goo.gl/forms/06oTltO6bVbpnBzi2] by the end of the day on Friday, January 20th, 2017.
