   5. Is there something missing on campus (a gap) that I would like to try to fill with a
      project idea? For example, is my country underrepresented in some way? Or, have

      topic? Or area? Important! Culture corps ideas may or may not be related to
      a student’s country of origin! Some are and some are not!
