First Trip Scholarship  
  • First Trip values the philosophy of global citizenship. Many people see the world as a member of one nation or society, however, global citizens view  the world through an international lens. We believe the true path to global citizenship is initiated once we immerse ourselves into another culture far different from our own.  Only then are we forced to leave our comfort zones and neglect the unconscious ethnocentrism that we all possess before living abroad.
  • Therefore, First Trip may provide funding for individuals traveling to countries ranked lower than Very High on the United Nations' annual Human        Development Index (HDI). As the HDI is updated annually, only countries whose human development have been ranked as High, Medium, or Low on the latest HDI are considered eligible destinations by First Trip. You are encouraged to review the FAQs page for more information. 
  • Currently, scholarships are awarded up to $1,500.00 and are determined by applicant need, destination, and availability of funds.  
  • Passport vouchers are available for a select number of individuals with demonstrated financial need. Students selected for this award must attend a passport workshop (virtual options available). Learn more about our unique program by clicking the link below!
