Costs and Applying


How to Apply

Once you have taken a look through the trip descriptions and have a good idea of where you’d like to go, head on over to Garnet Gateway to fill out your AESOP Application. (Note: This will open in early June). We ask that you pick your top 5 choices (in order of preference), as well as your preferred level of trip.

Costs

The cost of attending AESOP is $300.  However it should be noted that we believe that all first-years who wish to participate in AESOP should be able to do so! If financial constraints would prevent you from participating, we want you to know that there is financial aid available for those who qualify. Email your request for financial aid to aesop.bates@gmail.com by July 1st.

T-Shirts

Every year, we make a special T-shirt for the AESOP program that features the artwork of one of our very own student leaders.  These shirts are always really popular and will probably become one of your most favorite articles of clothing.  In fact, it’s not uncommon to see seniors walking around still wearing their well-worn first-year AESOP shirt around campus.  T-shirts cost $12 and are collected when you arrive on campus.
