Each year, the AB program awards a number of need-based scholarships to participants on any of the winter, spring and summer break trips organized through Leadership & Community Service-Learning in the Adele H. Stamp Student Union. Each year, the Alternative Breaks Scholarship committee is able to award around $12,000 to students participating in Alternative Break experiences.
Alternative Breaks scholarships are made possible through the generosity of many individuals, organizations and friends of the Alternative Breaks program. We are fortunate to have the support of UMD Alternative Break alumni, the Maryland Parents Association, Mr. And Mrs. Bruce Berlage, Margaret Moose Swallow and countless other valued contributors. The AB Scholarship Fund is also supported in part via a generous grant from the President's Fearless Fund.
Thank you to all of the Alternative Break Scholarship and Program supporters!
