Puentes Program Deposit
After submitting your Application Form and having the initial conversation with Puentes staff, a US$300 deposit is due in order to start the coordination of your internship and Puentes experience. If you do not approve an internship placement within two weeks of receiving your first internship offer, your deposit will be fully refunded.
Puentes Program Fee Balance
We ask that the balance of the program fee be paid once you confirm your internship placement and participation in the Puentes program. The program fee varies depending on the housing option that you choose and the duration of your stay in Buenos Aires, so please select the corresponding program type based on your confirmed plans. Note that the program fee balance amounts listed below take into consideration the previously paid US$300 deposit.
Spanish Jumpstart Weekly Program Fee
Puentes offers Spanish Jumpstart in order to refresh and strengthen your language skills before diving into your experience. The language classes are taught strictly in Spanish in small groups so that you are fully immersed in the language for three to four hours per day, five days a week during your language training.
Many Puentes participants choose to do one to two weeks of Spanish Jumpstart classes before starting their internships. This allows a dedicated time for language and cultural adaptation (and for exploration of the amazing Buenos Aires sites), which can be very helpful to have under your belt prior to your internship.
You can select multiple Spanish Jumpstart Weekly Programs if you would like more than one week of language immersion.
