Blazers on Break 2017: New Orleans,LA
Come join us on this unique spring break trip where we will transcend a charity model of service, in an effort to truly engage a community, both intellectually and socially.
Achieving that level of engagement requires intentional study of the cultures and histories of these two cities. After these trips, attendees will come to better understand the inner workings of city government, in addition to how important it is for citizens to cultivate meaningful relationships across racial, political, religious, and socioeconomic barriers in order to effectively deal with local issues.
Each student selected to go on either trip will take part in 4-5 group discussions,where we discuss the required reading to be provided once selected. These group discussions will also give us an opportunity to discuss the culture of New Orleans, its similarities to Birmingham in terms of demographics, history and opportunities, and how communities can come together to grow despite challenges.
March 11th -16th , 2017
Cost: no cost, but each student should bring spending money with them (see below for more details)
**Selected students will receive meal money that will cover 3 meals a day for each day of the trip. We also plan to do a few other fun things that week (i.e., go to the movies, shop at the mall, etc), and it will be the responsibility of each student to pay for those activities, should they wish to participate.

USGA Andrew M. Sands Memorial Emergency Student Loan Program Application
Thank you for your interest in the Andrew M. Sands Memorial Emergency Student Loan Program (ESLP), sponsored by the Undergraduate Student Government Association (USGA). This program is designed to help students receive financial assistance for common expenses such as tuition and fees; textbooks; housing (on-campus and off-campus); utilities (water, electricity, gas, cable, and internet); title payments (automotive payments, insurance policies); medical expenses; emergency travel expenses, etc.
The program is for eligible UAB undergraduate students. The maximum amount of an Emergency Student Loan is $500 dependent upon the circumstances of the student’s case. After receiving a loan, the student will then have 60 days to repay the loan to Student Financial Services. If the student does not repay the loan within said time period, a hold will be placed on the student’s UAB account, thus not allowing the student to register for classes or graduate. An extension of 30 days may be given at the discretion of the ESLP coordinator.
Enrolled in at least 12 hours as an undergraduate student at UAB
Must complete a mandatory meeting with the Emergency Student Loan Program Coordinator
Must turn in the following documents along with the application:
Proof of Need (bank statement or other proof of income)
Bill or Letter of Delinquency proving need for ESLP assistance
Note: Loans will not be dispersed to students who do not meet all requirements listed above.
You will be notified of your loan acceptance or denial no later than one week after submitting your application.
Applications may be submitted to the USGA Advisor, Hill Student Center, Suite 230.
