ProWorld

Research Partnerships


ProWorld's innovative research model allows professors to do original research in the field without being present at all times.  ProWorld will work with your institution to create a laboratory where your students and our participants can explore health, environmental, and social and economic issues.  Students will create original results that can be analyzed on-site or at your home institution for publishing.

The Process
With the help of a ProWorld Program Advisor your school selects an appropriate site and the project parameters and determines when the primary researcher will be on-site to create the project.  Professors are encouraged to come down with a group of their students to set up the initial research and return once a year with their students to maintain the research.  ProWorld will work with your school for administrative approval.  After the initial project program, ProWorld can work to place your students or our interns in the project to continue the research when the primary researcher is not on site.

ProWorld provides:
  • Pre-trip organizational support and materials
  • Help marketing the program with your organization
  • Travel arrangements

  • Post-program follow up from the community 
  • Extensive safety and liability coverage
"Personally coming to Belize was one of the best decisions I’ve ever made. After this experience I’ll never forget Belize! I expect that I’ll return in the future." - WWU Student
