The Tortuga Study Abroad Scholarship program is awarding passionate students who are interested in exploring the world. Young people deserve to know the world beyond their campuses but, unfortunately not everyone can accomplish this dream being on a student budget. The Tortuga Study Abroad Scholarship program was initiated with the help of Tortuga’s customers who, while purchasing any of the items for their travels, they were paying it forward by funding scholarships for less financially fortunate students.
The amount of the scholarship is $1000 and can be used for books, travel, tuition, or room and board. The amount will be sent directly to winner’s abroad program or university. The lucky winner, will also receive one outbreaker backpack worth $249 that will allow him/ her bring everything he/ she needs without checking a bag. The Outbreaker travel backpack is a maximum-sized carry on for city travelers.
Only US citizens, permanent residents, or students who are currently studying in the US and own a student VISA are eligible for this scholarship. They must be full-time undergrad students pursuing their courses at a four-year, degree-granting college or university in the U.S.
The scholarship deadline for Spring 2018 is December 20th 2017.
