The COVID pandemic has thwarted our Chocolate University International Business Immersion program, twice! We selected the CU class of 2020 students and had big plans in place, but were unable to complete the program due to the shift to virtual learning and inability to safely travel internationally with students in 2020.

Unfortunately, the conditions still were not right for the program’s intended Tanzania destination in the summer of 2022.

We do have some good news! We are planning several exciting updates including new scholarships and even considering alternate origin location desinations for a successful reboot of the Chocolate University program in Summer 2023.

More information and applications will be available by August 2022. Applications will be open to Southwest Missouri area high school students graduating in 2023 and 2024 and who are at least 16 by July 1, 2023.
