Do Something Different for Spring Break

Thinking about your next Spring Break?
Consider an "alternative" spring break. Instead of working on your tan, or spending the week at home getting bored, head off to a different locale and gain a better understanding of yourself and your capacity for helping others, and make new friends along the way! People out there need your help and you can give it. So get out and get excited; there are people yet to know, places yet to see, and help yet to give!

Who is Eligible?

  • All students who have been admitted to the Hutton Honors College, with a CGPA of 3.3 or higher.

  • You need to have been accepted onto an alternative spring break service project team.

  • Priority will be given to those who have not previously received an ASB grant.

  • Recipients of Hutton International Experience Program (HIEP) grants for spring break service trips may also apply.
  • Some IU Spring Break projects require registration in a Spring Semester class so you need to register in November or December for the specific course.
