AN ENRICHING TRAVEL EXPERIENCE ABROAD

Our Travel Scholarship can help you achieve your goals and give you advantage to develop your ideas, and truly learn the language, as you’ll be surrounded by it day and night. We want to make sure you make the most out of your experience abroad and have the confidence to explore and feel secure in your destination. So, together with the $3,000 USD budget, you will receive 10 FREE online Spanish or Portuguese lessons to prepare you for your trip.
YOU DESIGN YOUR OWN ITINERARY
Do you or would you like to have your own travel itinerary? We will not interfere with your plans. Choose the destinations you want to visit and how long you want to stay! Whether you want to see as many places as possible, or get to know a few locations as intimately as possible, we want to help you have the most enriching experience possible.
MAKE IT MEANINGFUL
Meaningful travel is on the rise, especially in the form of “voluntourism”—literally, volunteering with social-good or eco-friendly projects while travelling. As a company, we strongly support those who have the passion to help others and contribute a positive social impact. But volunteering does more than benefit the local community: Helping others while travelling will transform your experience! You will put aside the tourist spots and interact with locals on a more meaningful level. You will have more intimate conversations with people and see how they really live in your destination. And you will discover the hidden blessings and hardships that visitors normally never experience. In fact, you will experience all this and more while improving your language skills and making profound friendships that will last a lifetime. If you would like to contribute toward volunteer or humanitarian projects during your trip, we will gladly support you and can even help find suitable programs that may interest you.
