The Alternative Break Travel Grant is a financial need-based grant awarded to students applying to an Alternative Break Trip sponsored by the Student Experience and Engagement Community Engagement and Leadership program. The purpose of the Alternative Break Travel Grants is to reduce accessibility barriers related to financial need for students wanting to participate in an immersive service-learning experience.
Partial travel grants are granted to students accepted to the Alternative Break program. Awards for the full cost of trip fees are not offered at this time. Travel grants may be used to cover up to 100% of the trip fee of the trip to which the awardee is accepted. All awards must be used to defray the cost of the trip and will be used to directly cover costs of the awardee’s travel as part of an alternative break trip.
