Summer Break trip applications are now closed.
Winter Break Trips are timed to start right after the New Year's holiday or start so that they end just as the spring semester begins. Winter Break Trips always fill up, but generally speaking, we get less applications for each available spot in Winter than the other times of the year. Apply for a Winter Break Trip if you really want a particular destination or issue/service...
Spring Break Trips (domestic only) are timed to coincide with the UW Spring Break each spring semester. Spring Break Trips are our most popular (generally we get approximately 3 applications for each available spot in our Spring Break Trips offerings).
Summer Break Trips typically take place right after the end of the spring semester and international trips are frequently more than one week in length. The application for Trips is usually available approximately six weeks before the last class day, however the timing of Spring Break can effect the decision on when to make the application available.
Acceptance and participation in a Winter or Spring Break Trip does not preclude future participation in additional Trips. Being an active Alternative Breaks Committee member, planning a trip, can help guarantee your place on that or another trip offering!
