First-Time Traveler Scholarship
Travel opens your eyes to the unique cultures and beauty of the world, and we believe everyone should experience it. Which is why we’ve started the First-Time Traveler Scholarship to help make your dream of traveling abroad for the first time a reality.
Apply for a chance to receive a $3,000 voucher towards any EF Ultimate Break trip.
You’re eligible if you are...
- a first-time international traveler*
- 18–29 years old
- curious about the world and eager to share your experience with your home communities
*A First-Time Traveler is someone with limited to no experience traveling abroad. We know that not everyone gets the chance to travel, whether due to financial constraints, commitments in your daily life, or any other reasons. So, if you’ve got big travel dreams, but don’t have the resources to make it happen, we want to help.
How to apply
Application window is open from 4/1-4/30. Winner will be announced in early May.
What we’re all about
65+ trips for every travel style.
Whether you want to island-hop through Greece, zipline above Costa Rican jungles, or see virtually every corner of Europe in 35 days, we have the perfect trip for you.
All travel, no hassle.
Seeing the world should be fun, not stressful. Which is why we plan everything and include things like flights, daily breakfast, and local guides. All you have to do is travel.
This is group travel.
You might sign up solo (or with a few friends), but you’ll travel with a whoooole bunch of people you just met, and—cue dramatic music—make friends that will last a lifetime.
