travel provides educational experiences
We would like to help our minority youth and millennials travel the world. This is why we have created the Passport Campaign. The scholarship is funded for those who are in need of financial assistance and cannot afford to fund the entire trip alone. Though we are working on programs to cover the entire cost of the trip, we figured the most important cost is the passport ($130 value).
If you are looking to apply in the future, sign up for our email listing and we will let you know when applications go out!
The cost to sponsor a passport will be reimbursed within 30 days of application date.

Want to help a student travel the world?
We get many questions as to why this isn't an open application to any youth or student who is inspired to travel the world. The problem is we do not have ENOUGH underrepresented youth who are provided the same opportunities and support. Only 2.9% of all U.S. students enrolled at institutions of higher education in the United States have studied abroad during the 2014-2015 academic year. Leaving minorities at an even smaller rate that is almost non-existent. The lack of resources and funds are limiting minority students from receiving a global education and we believe our programs will foster the importance of international and cultural exposure.
The latest report as of 2014, NAFSA published:
- 72.9% of students who studied abroad were Caucasian
- Asian, Native Hawaiian or Pacific Islander (8.1%), Hispanic (8.8%), Black/African-American (5.6%), Multiracial (4.1%), and American Indian or Alaskan Native (0.5%) students made up the rest of that amount
This is why we are an advocate to get people to explore the world with different backgrounds.
