Apply to Go on a Trip

The Breakout Princeton trip application for Spring 2019 is now live. Applications are due Sunday, December 9 by 11:59 PM.

Applications go live twice a year, once at the beginning of the fall semester and once in the spring semester. Breakout Princeton trips are fully funded to extend this opportunity to as many Princeton students as possible.

Given the Pace Center's commitment to access, students may only go on a Breakout Princeton trip once. If you have already gone on a trip and want to stay involved, consider proposing a trip for the 2019-2020 academic year. Learn more about proposing a trip.

If you’re staying on campus for fall break, spring break, or intercession, feel free to check out our Breakout Local program.

For any questions or to request more information feel free to reach out to Breakout Princeton Program Coordinator, Geralyn Williams, at
