Venture Program

Where will you Venture? 

Part of the Alma Commitment is to enable each of you to pursue 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. The Alma Venture Program provides recipients with financial support for these applied learning experiences.

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 make certain that every student has access to life-changing opportunities, the Alma Venture and other college-sponsored grant programs will provide up to $2,500 to offset the cost of your personalized experience.
