The total budget for all ASB trips for one academic year averages between $50,000 – $60,000 depending on the number of trips. ASB is a student organization that receives a substantial amount of funding from the Student Government Association. 

For the 2019-2020 academic year, the cost per participant is $200 (the required $150 trip deposit is included) for driving trips, $450 and $600 for domestic flying trips, and $650 for international trips. Participants have most of the academic year to conduct individual, team and club fundraisers that help reduce the cost of trips. 

Past fundraisers have included:

  • Laf vs. Lehigh t-shirt sales
  • Restaurant week
  • Tie Dye 
  • Gertrude Hawk candy bar sales
  • Bake Sales

In addition to Club Fundraisers, each team is encouraged to come up with fundraising ideas.
