This registration process allows you to reserve your space for an ASB trip and pay for the corresponding fee. General applicants must pay the entire non-refundable program fee, by Discover, MasterCard, Visa or AMEX at the time of registration. The per person trip fee for a driving trip is $400, a bus trip is $350 (with the exception of Boston; $200), and a flying trip is $900.
Scholarships: Students applying for an ASB scholarship, will instead pay a non-refundable $150 deposit. Unfortunately, scholarships will not be offered to students selecting a flying trip. Scholarship applicants will be asked to answer an essay question as part of the registration process. Scholarships go only to the neediest of students, usually whom are Pell Grant eligible. Decisions are based solely on financial need as determined by Boston University. Pending the scholarship decision, you are required to pay any remaining balance due for your chosen trip no later than 5:00pm, January 17, 2013.

CELOP students will not be able to register for ASB due to the limited number of available spots.
