Global Policy Alternative Spring Break Trip

Saturday, March 21st to Sunday, March 29th, 2020


Application Deadline: Thursday, January 9th, 2020


















The Caltech Y is excited to seek applicants for our 2020 Global Policy Trip.  Join other Caltech Students on one of our non-traditional spring break experiences in Geneva, Switzerland.  The trip will include visits and lectures in international organizations as well as the opportunity to explore this global city… not to mention making new friends with other Caltech students.

Geneva is home to numerous international organizations like the Red Cross, the World Health Organization, the World Intellectual Property Organization, among others.  One of our stops will be the European Organization for Nuclear Research (CERN) which operates the largest particle physics laboratory in the world and is one of the biggest international collaborations in science.

Since the Global Policy ASB Trip is scheduled during spring break, we understand that some may not want to return to Los Angeles - opting to stay in Geneva or travel from there to other destinations.  To make this possible we are offering 2 options:


               Option 1:  Cost $1400       Round Trip Travel from, and returning to, Los Angeles (Caltech)


               Option 2:  Cost $1200       One Way Travel from Caltech (Los Angeles) to Geneva, Switzerland


All options include lodgings, most meals, educational discussions session... and, of course, the sites and experiences of this European city… with flights and ground transportation provided based on the option you choose. 


The Global Policy Alternative Spring Break Trip is possible thanks to generous funding from the Frank and Elsie Stefanko Fund, the George Housner Fund, and the Caltech Y. Questions may be directed to or in person at the Caltech Y (505 South Wilson – next to the Caltech Employees Federal Credit Union).
