The Honors College 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. For this year’s program, the Honors College will travel to Chicago, Illinois during Spring Break 2020. 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, and applications will be accepted up until 5:00 PM on November 1, 2019. Student interviews will be conducted prior to fall break and students will be notified about selection before winter break.
Please note that students may only receive one HEG grant per academic year. If you are selected to be a part of Brainy Break 2020, then you may be ineligible for another HEG until the 2020 ‐ 2021 cycle. 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.
