 +The Institute of International Education offers Generation Study Abroad Travel Grants to students who attend a college or university that is one of their Partner institutions.  Grants are for $2000 and can be used for travel to and from the destination country as well as for travel incurred while studying there. They have a particular focus on awarding the grants to high achieving, low income students with financial need. Also included are those who are first generation college students, those from underrepresented races, ethnicities and genders as well as those with disabilities and those who have had little or no travel abroad. After their travel participants are expected to be “ambassadors” for the program, sharing their experience with others in a variety of ways. More information such as guidelines and timing of applications is available on IIE’s website iie.org.
**A Backpack Scholarship?**
: This one has a fun history.  In 2009 a couple of friends on a backpacking trip in Europe got frustrated by the limitations of most luggage. So they decided to create their own with focus on helping people travel, work and live. And now they also offer a scholarship to support your study trip abroad. To be eligible you should be passionate about travel. The $1000 scholarship is offered twice each year. Winners also receive an Outbreaker Backpack. The money is sent directly to your study abroad school or program (different arrangements can be made if that’s not possible). The current contest is open for applications, which must be received by December 20, 2017. Winners are announced byJanuary 5, 2018. See their website for more details about applying at tortugabackpacks.com. **A Backpack Scholarship?**
