We believe that all students should have the opportunity to participate in the service learning opportunity that an Alternative Break provides. That is why we work hard to minimize costs, but for some students, trip fees are prohibitively expensive. Even though the generous support from University departments has elicited an 84% increase in applicants eligible for those scholarships, the majority of students still pay the entire cost out-of-pocket. To keep Alternative Breaks accessible to all students, we have partnered with KU Endowment to create an endowed scholarship fund. Donations made to this fund will help to subsidize trip fees for students who may not be able to participate otherwise.
Please help a new generation of students gain insight, experience and a passion for service with a gift to the KU Alternative Breaks scholarship fund.
