Pay It Forward with our WorldStrides Passport Grant


Our team at WorldStrides Custom Programs is committed to helping you and your students get back to study abroad and making it more accessible. The cost of a passport is $165 and can be a barrier to many students who have never traveled abroad before. By partnering with WorldStrides, your program can earn $165 for every student who travels abroad during the 2023 – 2024 academic year to help fund students travelling abroad in the future, and ensure that all students have the opportunity to access the benefits of international education



How it works

  1. Run three or more undergraduate, faculty-led programs* during the 2023 – 2024 academic year with WorldStrides Custom Programs.
  2. At the end of your travels, we’ll send you $165 per traveling student across all three+ programs.
  3. Use your grant to help fund travel abroad for future students.


Additional funding for students

Additional scholarships up to $3,000 are available to students in need of additional funding for a faculty-led program. In addition, through a partnership with the Foundation for International Education, we will offer $500 in International Financial Assistance (IFA) for students registered for WorldStrides university programs in the current and subsequent calendar year.



*To be eligible to receive funds, program must be a undergraduate, faculty-led program booked through WorldStrides Custom Programs and have at least 10 full-paying participants travelling between July 1, 2023 – June 30, 2024. Additional terms and conditions apply. See your program agreement for full details.
