First-Time Traveler Scholarship

The best way to learn about the world is to experience it, and we believe everyone deserves that opportunity. Which is why for the second straight year, we’re giving you the opportunity to turn your travel dreams into reality.

Entries are closed

You’re eligible if you are...

  • a first-time international traveler*
  • 18–35 years old
  • curious about the world and eager to share your experiences

*A First-Time Traveler is someone with limited to no experience traveling abroad. So if you’ve got big travel dreams, but don’t have the resources to make it happen—due to financial constraints, commitments in your daily life, or any other reasons—we want to help.

Apply by April 30

Fill out the application form with some basic info.

Record a video (no longer than two min.) or write an essay (500 words max) explaining why you deserve this scholarship, where you'd go, and what it would mean to you.

Self-high five! Then just wait until we announce the winner. It could be you.

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.
