Financial Assistance, Scholarships, and Fundraising
We want you to experience the thrill of traveling on an unforgettable adventure! We don’t want the price of the trip to be what stands in your way, and that’s why WorldStrides would like to share a few popular financial opportunities with you.
FLAG Financial Assistance
WorldStrides believes that every child, regardless of background, should have access to the benefits of educational travel. To support this vision, our team established the FLAG Foundation, a 501(c) 3 non-profit organization that provides financial assistance to students. This year, more than $1 million in financial assistance is available for qualifying families with an adjusted gross income (AGI) up to $85,000. Thousands of families have benefited from the need-based FLAG program after completing a confidential, simple application.
Since this opportunity is need-based and given out on a first-come, first-serve basis, don’t wait to apply! Find out more at FLAG Foundation or complete the FLAG application by calling WorldStrides Customer Service at 1-800-468-5899.
The Student Youth Travel Association (SYTA) offers need- and merit-based scholarships for traveling students. Visit www.sytayouthfoundation.org for more information on how to apply.
