Get Funded to Travel the World (and Make a Difference)

Hostelling International USA, a nonprofit organization that operates hostels and community events, has a goal is to inspire a genuine understanding of people, places and cultures in order to create a more tolerant world. We love their latest initiative to propel the industry toward a more sustainable future.

The team has launched the Explore the World Travel Scholarship, and are offering a $2,000 scholarship to help finance an international trip with an educational or service component integrated in the itinerary.

Applicants are asked to demonstrate their vision through a series of short-answer questions in the application form. Candidates will be chosen by dedicated local volunteers.

If you have an idea about how you can make a difference in the world through travel, this is your chance to bring your vision to life. We can’t wait to see how you can impact our world.

The deadline for this scholarship is May 15, 2016.
