Lisa and Josh are travel YouTubers.

Their channel is built around one mission: help as many people as possible travel the world on a budget. Especially because they couldn’t afford to study abroad when they were in college, they feel this scholarship is the most direct way to help students travel.

Going on their first trips abroad changed EVERYTHING for them, in the best way possible. The experience opened them up to the world, gave them the chance to explore new places, learn new cultures, meet new people, take on different ways of thinking, and try all sorts of delicious food. With the ability to travel full time, they are looking to pass that good fortune on to as many people as they possibly can, starting with you.

Any first-generation undergraduate student who is a U.S. citizen accepted into a study abroad program may apply for this scholarship, but applicants who are underrepresented minorities are preferred.

To apply, please record a video no longer than two minutes that tells us: 1. who you are, 2. what you’re going to use this scholarship for (where are you going, what are you doing, what you hope to get out of your study abroad program), and 3. why you need this scholarship. After you record, please upload it to a link file (youtube, vimeo, *public google drive, etc) and submit the link for review.

(Nothing fancy required—just you and your phone in selfie mode telling us about yourself and why this is a big deal for you! There’s no need for formality - we just want you to be yourself. Hit us with as much of your personality as you feel comfortable with!)

Selection Criteria:
Ambition, Drive, Impact of Program on Academic and Career Trajectory, Community Impact Abroad and Upon Student’s Return Home, Academic Preparedness, Diversity of Background and Experience
