Take Time Out to Change the World

What would you do if you had a year off to change your life while helping to change the world?

Each of these Vassar graduates, and many others over the past three decades, was able to realize a dream that encompassed their own lives and the lives of others, thanks to the Time Out Grant, funded by an extraordinarily generous, anonymous Vassar alumna.

Vassar alumnae/i who have reached their 40th birthday are eligible to apply for the Time Out Grant.  Proposals involving innovation and out-of-the-box thinking, with an end goal of significant change, are encouraged.  Projects must be designed to span a time frame of at least twelve months.  You must be willing to take a full year off from your current endeavors and devote yourself full-time to your project.
