Bradley Miller Spring Break Trip Award

Bradley Miller Spring Break Trip Scholarship exists to support the SIUE Alternative Spring Break trip sponsored by the Kimmel Student Involvement Center which allows SIUE students to volunteer in a diverse community, and to commemorate the life of Bradley Miller who served as the student trip coordinator for two years. The funds will be used to support the Kimmel Student Involvement Center Spring Break trip or other similar volunteer activity. The monies in this fund may be used to assist with registration fees or other associated costs of the trip for students in need. The recipients of these monies will be determined by the staff coordinators of the trip or activity. With all other factors being equal, the participants who exhibit Bradley Miller’s leadership skills, community service and citizenship should receive preference.

Through generous support from the SIUE Foundation, the family of Bradley Miller, and various donors, SIUE Community Engagement is pleased to provide funding to SIUE undergraduate students who need financial assistance to participate in the SIUE International Alternative Spring Break service trip. Funding is available to support individuals with demonstrated financial need and enthusiasm for the SIUE Domestic Alternative Spring Break service trip experience.
