Financial Aid


In 2015, Overland awarded nearly $100,000 in financial aid. Awards range from 10% and 50% of the program fee (excluding transportation costs). All financial aid awards are dependent on the availability of space and funds. Awards are made on a rolling basis, starting in February and continuing through the 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 (mid to 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.
