Established in 2002, the Road Scholarship program awards funds to students and youth who would otherwise not have the resources to participate in enriching and life-changing travel experience opportunities.
Designed for students in grades K-12 and 18 or younger at the time of travel, a Road Scholarship is financial aid granted to individuals or groups of five or more who have been nominated by a teacher or youth group leader and meet criteria within five categories:
ACHIEVEMENT | NEED | INITIATIVE / INVOLVEMENT | SERVICE / CITIZENSHIP | CONNECTION
The maximum award is $1,000 for individuals and $5,000 for groups. All applications are vetted and awarded by the SYTA Youth Foundation’s Board of Trustees. By submitting a nomination, you agree to receive communications from Teach & Travel.
Applications for the Fall 2023 Road Scholarship are now closed.
Award announcements will go out the week of December 4, 2023.
Spring 2024 application period will be open January 24 - March 29, 2024 with award announcments the week of April 29, 2024.
