Participant Application Process

SIP Experiences will take place in late Spring, tentatively during the week of May 8-15, 2021.

Applications for student participants will open on January 15th at 11am and close February 18 at 12pm. Apply today!

Upon application review, some students may be selected to join staff and student Experience Leaders for a brief, informal interview.

Travel teams of 10-12 students will be selected by March 12, 2021.

Teams will meet on a weekly basis in the 6 weeks prior to travel, starting the week of March 29, 2021 to build an intentional learning community, provide context for the travel location and the social justice topic, develop an increased sense of self-awareness, and to cover logistical details.

Each participant will pay a $75 program fee, which will go towards the cost of most meals, transportation to our local partner sites, program and health & safety supplies. Program fees for all selected participants are due by April 2, 2021. More information about deposits will be shared with participants upon selection. If the cost is prohibitive, connect with Assistant Director of Student Involvement, Arielle Greenwald for financial support consideration.
