Honors & Scholars Alternative Breaks

The Honors and Scholars Programs, in partnership with the Center for Leadership and Service, offer volunteer opportunities to enrolled honors students through the Alternative Break program. The mission of the Alternative Break program is to engage students in meaningful and collaborative community service in an effort to increase awareness of social issues and strengthen the communities in which they serve as well as foster a strong sense of community among trip participants and to the university as a whole. These programs allow students to trade-in their traditional breaks for an in-depth, student-led community service experience while strengthening bonds within and across Honors and Scholars programs.

Applications to participate in the Honors Alternative Spring Break are now open! All Honors and Scholars students interested in performing community service over their 2019 spring break are welcome to apply! Students will be notified of their status prior to the university wide selection for Alternative Break participants.

Upon completion of the application, you will need to sign up for an interview time. Break participant interviews will occur from January 23-29 in the Honors and Scholars office in Howard Baker Center, Suite 130. If for some reason, none of the available interview times work for your schedule, you can contact Xylina Marshall at
