In 2017, Overland awarded over $180,000 in financial aid. Awards range from 10% to 50% of the trip fee (excluding equipment and transportation costs). All financial aid awards are dependent on the availability of space and funds. Awards are made on a rolling basis, starting in the fall and continuing through late spring. We award the majority of our financial aid for trips starting in Williamstown, Massachusetts. You are welcome to apply for a trip based outside of Williamstown, though aid for non-local trips is limited and awarded later in late April.
When a financial aid award is offered and accepted, a non-refundable deposit of $500 is due. We will then work together to create an acceptable payment plan for the final balance. Though we strive to meet the needs and interests of all families seeking financial aid, we cannot guarantee an offer. Your flexibility in trip placement will increase your chances of financial assistance.
