As part of the Alma Commitment, the Alma Venture program provides up to $2,500 to offset the cost of your personalized experience.
Where will you Venture?
Your Alma Venture could take place on campus, or on the other side of the world. It could be credit-bearing—or not. The opportunities are endless!
You could travel abroad for an off-campus study program, see what it’s really like to work in your field through an internship, delve deep into a research project or, get hands-on clinical experience.
