The Wandering Scholar makes international travel and learning opportunities accessible to exceptional high schoolers from underrepresented and low-income backgrounds.

We are more than just a travel scholarship.

Our innovative fellowship combines travel with pre- and post-trip programming, equipping participants with the skills to become engaged, globally competent citizens by:

  1. expanding their perspectives and ability to recognize those of others;
  2. building their capacity for resilience and empathy; and
  3. developing a roadmap for success beyond high school.
