WorldStrides is proud to offer three student scholarships for travelers participating on 2018 WorldStrides ISA faculty-led programs. This scholarship program evolved from our belief in the value of higher-ed global travel and commitment to providing inspiring and experiential academic opportunities to university students.

These $3,000 awards are open to undergraduate and graduate student travelers. (Executive students are not eligible.) The scholarship application requires a personal statement, letter of recommendation, and unofficial transcript from the student’s university. First year students who have not accumulated enough credit hours to generate an unofficial transcript may submit a letter of good standing in its place.
