Expeditions: All expedition registration will happen at one time, in September 2017 and all participants will be notified by October 2017. There will be an Information Session held in September 2017 for ALL expeditions, intensives and workshops which will provide additional information on the types of ventures – expeditions vs. intensives vs. workshops and what is involved in each.

Intensives and Workshops:

Workshops & Intensives are FREE!  These Ventures fill fast, sign up to reserve your spot for one of these incredible experiences to develop your leadership skills.

Spring 2018 Registration begins February 1st, 2018 and closes February 3rd, 2018.

Students will be notified if they have been selected for the Venture. Participant lists are randomly selected. If you are not selected, you can still add yourself to the waitlist of a Workshop or Intensive until 1 week prior to the Venture.


All Wharton students accepted as participants on an expedition can apply for a scholarship and receive up to the full land cost of the venture (selected based on financial need). Applicants should indicate whether they would like to be considered for a Scholarship.

Two Full Land Cost Scholarships are available per venture. The McNulty Leadership Program, with support from Student Financial Services, will select scholarship recipients based on need.
