How to apply for Explore America travel scholarship
To apply for the scholarship, provide the following through the application linked below:
1. Letter of recommendation
Ask an educator (a professor, administrator, or teacher, for example) to paint a holistic view of you as an individual and as a student, in about 250 to 500 words.
Meanwhile, there is no need for a paper copy—you’ll simply be copying and pasting your recommendation in the application.
Below are some suggestions if the person writing your recommendation is looking for inspiration:
academic strengths and interests
role in your community
you are deserving of an EF scholarship
Please provide the first name, last name, and email address of the educator who has written your recommendation for verification purposes.
2. Original travel quote
Open-mindedness, confidence, collaboration, and cultural awareness are important skills gained from traveling and studying abroad. Like Mark Twain said, “Travel is fatal to prejudice, bigotry, and narrow-mindedness.”
In 280 characters or less (including spaces), write your own original travel quote about open-mindedness, confidence, collaboration, and/or cultural awareness.
