  • 9. Costs and Fundraising (continued)
    More fundraising = less cost/person
    Spots are limited
    Spots available = (20 people total) – (2 advisors) – (3 student leaders) = 15 Tech students
  • 10. Application + Deposit
    Apply before February 18th at:
    By applying you are indicating a COMMITMENT. On Friday, February 18th, a non-refundable deposit of $100 (cash/checks) will need to be made if you have already submitted an application; the first 15 people to turn in the payment are in!!! (Trip meetings will ensue)
    Turn in depositto the Student Involvement Center (above Einstein’s in the Student Center) after 10:00 AM; a waiting list will be formed as needed. The DEPOSIT, not the application, will guarantee you a spot on the trip!
    Look for the “GT ASB 2011 Habitat for Humanity” group on Facebook for more information.
  • 11. Checks
    Make checks payable to Georgia Tech Foundation, and put “Alternative Break Trip – Your Name” in the memo line.
    Full payment of the trip will vary based on the success of our fundraising; once the group is formed we will notify you of how to pay the final amount at a group meeting.
