Sources of Complimentary Funding

The Alternative Spring Break Program provides several opportunities for students to offset their program costs (which includes flights, accommodations, and food*). Based on statistics from last year’s program, participants received approximately $765 in funding support (from the CUSA Conference and Discretionary Fund, faculty contributions, and fundraisers organized by the Student Experience Office). Please note this figure is an average, as some students received slightly more or less than this amount. There are also several opportunities for individual fundraising to allow for a greater amount of the program costs to be subsidized. For more information please contact the Student Development and Community Outreach Coordinator, Niamh O’Shea.

*Students may be responsible for some meals (depending on their destination and arrangements that have been made)
