This is your chance to use your expertise to challenge gender norms, harassment, assault, discrimination, and all forms of gender-based violence. Breakthrough will help you and your fellow students design iconic disruptive actions that we can take individually, in groups, and as a community. After the Action Lab, you'll continue to work with us at Breakthrough to implement your action and make change happen.
The 2018 application will close on February 5 at 12:00 PM ET. Students selected to attend will be notified by mid-February.

Breakthrough's Action Lab is free of charge to all participants. Breakfast, lunch, and snacks will be provided. While travel expenses are not covered for all, there are limited scholarship funds for those traveling greater distances or who may need assistance. Breakthrough is able to provide funding for local travel only; flights will not be reimbursed.
Scholarship funds will be on a sliding scale based on need. Students who receive scholarship funding will be notified along with their acceptance on January 26. Applying for scholarship funds does not guarantee funding; nor will it affect your chances of being accepted into the Action Lab.
