Welcome to Arkansas State University!

Honors Brainy Break

Honors Brainy Break is an alternative spring break program sponsored by the Honors College at Arkansas State University. The goal of this program is to fund unique experiences for students to be engaged outside of the classroom as well as explore opportunities outside of the state. A large portion of the costs associated with this program will be covered by the Honors Experience Grant (HEG), through the support of the Honors College Fee. This program is open to all current Honors students in good academic standing across campus. 

Please note that students may only receive one HEG grant per academic year. Preference will be given to students that have not previously participated in Brainy Break or traveled to this location before. All majors and classifications are welcome to apply.
