Alternative Break Lottery System

What is the Alternative Break lottery?

Lottery is where you sign-up for your Alternative Break trip! The lottery sign-up allows for everyone to have the same chance at getting a spot on a program of their choice. It is possible to come to the lottery and not get on a program as demand sometimes exceeds the spaces available, but there is a wait list for each trip.

For our 2018 Alternative Fall Break trips, lottery will be September 11th at 7pm in Orange Hall. 

Come to lottery with an open mind; all trips will be a rewarding experience.

What should you expect at lottery?

  • CLICK HERE to download and print the 2018 fall lottery packet.

  • Bring your completed lottery packet, deposit (cash/check ONLY made out to the Alternative Break Program), and a color copy of your drivers license.
  • Upon arrival to lottery you will be assigned your official lottery number, once your lottery packet has been reviewed.
  • If you are not there by the start time, you will only receive an opportunity to sign-up following the entire lottery process.
    • If you cannot make it on time or at all, communicate with us before lottery and we will have someone from our program serve as a proxy for you. 
  • A random number generator will begin selecting numbers. When a person’s number is called, each person will proceed to sign up for the trip of their choice until each trip is full.
  • Once you sign-up for a program, you must submit your deposit. Deposits for 2018 AFB trips are $50 (cash/check made out to the Alternative Break Program). 

If you are interested in applying for a fall scholarship, you can access the scholarship application HERE.
