Apply to Participate
Alternative Fall Break applications will be open the first two weeks of the fall semester.
Before you apply, it’s a good idea to learn more about alternative breaks:
- Learn more about the Alternative Break Program and the process.
- Explore the 2017-2018 trip themes and decide which ones are the most appealing to you.
- Eight Components of a Quality Alternative Break Trip. Note especially the alcohol- and other-drug-free nature of all trips, and the $6 a day food budget. Special care and consideration will be given to food preferences and intolerances as best as we can, but the $6 a day budget applies to all participants.)
- Interest sessions (scheduled each semester at the Center for Leadership and Service)
The application process consists of a set of essays that are submitted electronically. Students are notified of their application status by e-mail within two weeks of the due date.
