Regional treks are multi-day excursions to cities across the U.S. and therefore are typically scheduled during summer, fall break, or spring break. Dates and destination cities subject to change.
Student Requirements and Eligibility
Eligible students must be a currently enrolled undergraduate student at Scripps College. Participants are selected based on quality of application and their expressed interest in or connection to the destination city. Priority will be giving to students on financial aid. Final cohorts will ideally represent the breadth of Scripps student talent, intellect, and curiosity.
Students must submit a current resume, short-essay application, and attend an pre-trek orientation and/or interview. Once selected, participants must attend the mandatory group kick-off event and commit to full participation in all scheduled visits and activities including daily debrief meetings during the trek.
Scripps College is grateful for community members that have come forward to help underwrite the cost of these events. Lodging, most meals, and transportation are provided for the duration of the Trek. Participants are responsible for their own transportation to and from the destination city.
