Anne Frank once said, “How wonderful it is that nobody need wait a single moment before starting to improve the world.”
With the countless problems that the world faces, it is important to encourage the next generation of students to pay it forward and give back. Sometimes it seems that there are more problems than there are solutions, but the solutions can start with each individual person.
The Travel with a Purpose Scholarship seeks to support a student who cares about the problems facing the world and who has the drive to pay it forward in practical ways. Students are encouraged to apply if they are currently in their senior year of high school or enrolled in undergraduate school.
To apply, create a video that explains what problem you would choose to tackle if you could travel for 6 months and focus on solving a specific problem.
The application deadline is Mar 31, 2022. Winners will be announced on Apr 30, 2022.
The scholarship award is $500 per winner.
The winner will be publicly announced on Apr 30, 2022. Prior to the announcement date, we may contact finalists with additional questions about their application. We will work with donors to review all applications according to the scholarship criteria. Winners will be chosen based on the merit of their application.
Award checks will be sent to the financial aid office of the winner's academic institution or future academic institution in their name to be applied to their tuition, and in the name of their institution (depending on the school's requirements). If the award is for a qualified educational non-tuition expense, we will work with the winner directly to distribute the award and make sure it goes towards qualified expenses.
Before we award the scholarship, the winner will be required to confirm their academic enrollment status. Depending on the circumstances, verification of Student ID and/or their most recent transcript will be required.
