Are you 18 or older? If yes, consider applying for a Explore The World Travel Scholarship! The folks at Hostelling International think that travel should be as much about making a difference in the world as it is about seeing it, so they’ve created Explore the World Travel Scholarships. Recipients of the scholarship receive $2,000 to help finance their international trip as long as they have an educational or service component to their itinerary. They give to you so you can give back.
Candidates must meet the qualifying criteria:
- Be 18 – 30 years of age
- Be a permanent, legal resident of the USA
- Reside or attend school in one of the select metropolitan areas where HI USA has a community presence.
- Have a strong desire and motivation to experience other people and cultures through international travel
- Plan to take a trip to a destination outside of the 50 United States between now and August 31, 2017 that incorporates volunteerism or service learning.
