Helping Hands Scholarship

The Helping Hands Scholarship evolved from WorldStrides employees' belief in the educational value of student travel, as well as our commitment to providing educational opportunities to deserving students. For the past ten years, WorldStrides employees have sponsored and raised money year-round through a variety of internal fundraisers. All of the funds raised, combined with a matching donation from WorldStrides, are used to provide scholarships for WorldStrides DiscoverNow! travelers. http://www.worldstrides.com/fundraising/scholarships_discovernow.php

SYTA Scholarship

Do you know a deserving student who needs financial assistance to take advantage of the opportunity to travel? SYTA, of which WorldStrides is a founding member, believes that travel is essential to education, and the organization has been making financial aid grants available since 2002 to enable more students to travel.
