Part of the Alma Commitment is to enable each of you to pursue an Alma Venture—an opportunity to put what you are learning in the classroom to work in a meaningful way that advances your academic, personal and professional goals. 

Want to experience the world and get a different perspective on your area of study? Maybe an international Spring Term or off-campus study program is the right Venture for you. Are you looking for some work experience or want to see what it’s really like to work in your chosen field? An internship may be just the Venture for you! Are you interested in the health professions? Your Venture might be a clinical experience or health-related research project. Alma offers other experiential learning possibilities for students interested in leadership and service.

To help you access the most high impact opportunity possible, you can apply for up to $2,500 in Alma Venture funds to offset the cost of your Venture.

Your Venture could take place here on campus, or on the other side of the world. It could be credit-bearing—or not. The opportunities are endless. Where will you Venture?
