At UnCollege we understand the importance of travel. It's a one-of-a-kind opportunity to learn both about ourselves and the cultures that enrich our world. That's why fellows in our program start their gap years exploring and volunteering abroad. It's also the reason why we're offering up to $1,250 to subsidize the cost of travel to all new applicants!
Here are the basics:
This part is important. Please read it before applying:
The first phase of the Gap Year program is a three month international immersion and volunteer experience we call Voyage. Because flight costs can vary widely based on a number of variables, airfare is not included in the program fee. To qualify for our free airfare promotion, fellows need to confirm their participation in our program by submitting a $250 deposit by November 30th, 2015. This deposit is used to hold your spot in the volunteer placement of your choosing while abroad.
To keep it simple, we’ll apply a $1250 credit to your student account, reducing that amount from the program fee. Then when you work with our Voyage coordinator to register for your travel, you’ll be free to make your own flight reservations directly with the airline of your choice.
** Because we cannot anticipate all the individual variations involved with each fellow’s travel arrangements, we will apply a $1250 credit to the fellow’s UnCollege student account. Just to be clear, UnCollege will not be paying the airline directly on your behalf. You prefer to make your own flight arrangements, right? So we’ll keep it simple and trust you to use the money saved on the reduction in your program fee for your travel arrangements. Easy!
