Global Travel Scholarship Program

Summer travel overseas for high school students

globaltravelers3.gifThe Council’s Global Travel Scholarship Program provides a small number of scholarships to selected high school students to participate in a summer program abroad through World Learning’s Experiment in International Living.

Programs last three to five weeks and involve a combination of host family stays, language training, community service, and outdoor adventures.

Thaland2.gif"It still amazes me now that I could have formed such a strong relationship with my Thai family. It has definitely made me less doubtful of the strength of human interaction. It is something that can defeat all obstacles, even differences in things such as culture and language."
- Natalia, 2006 Scholar and Experimenter to Thailand

Since 2004, the Council has sent 17 students to Argentina, Botswana, Brazil, Chile, China, Costa Rica, Ecuador, France, Italy, Japan, South Africa, Spain, and Thailand.
