Scholarship Opportunities

Alternative Spartan Breaks is so excited to announce that we will now be offering scholarships to ASB members to help offset the costs of a trip. If a flight is needed, full scholarships do not cover the cost of a flight. 

Full Scholarships

We want to know (and see!) how ASB has impacted you.
