*For a list of important dates, scroll to the bottom of the page
1) Online Application Applications will be available April 7, 2014. They will be accepted until April 14, 2014 . All applications are to the general Fall Break Service & Justice Trips 2014 Program, not for a specific site. We will take into consideration your preferences but offer no placement guarantee. (Host site placement preference is given to returning participants.)
As part of the online application, You will rank justice issues you are interested in. You will be completing brief essays. There is no option to save and return so plan about 35 minutes to complete the entire application.
2) A deposit of $50 is required to hold your spot. The $50 deposit will only be accepted on April 7 or 8. This deposit is required for your application to be considered complete. Payments of cash, check or credit card will be accepted. The cost of the entire trip is $325 for full week and $210 for 5-day Omaha trips, and the remaining balance of your payment is due on September 4, 2014 by 4:30PM.
**Your $50 deposit is refundable until May 10, 2014 should you choose to not participate in the program. If you withdraw your application between May 10- Sept. 6, 2014 up to $150 of the payment may be refunded. Should you choose to not participate in the program after Sept 6, 2014 no portion of the payment is refundable because donations to host sites and other costs have already been awarded by this time.
** There are a limited number of need-based student scholarships. Please fill out the Fall 2013 Scholarship Application as soon as possible. Priority will be given to earlier applications and all applications are due by April 4, 2013 by midnight **
