Just one trip, the right people and great ideas can spark enduring partnerships between communities in the Americas.
Travel is powerful: It shatters prejudices and opens individuals up to new cultures, ideas and ways of thinking. Travel is often a means to connect the right people and ideas necessary to enact social change. This program is funded by the U.S. Department of State.
Each year, we award approximately 50–75 travel grants through our Education and Culture program to chartered Partners chapters. The grants fund international travel for qualified adult professionals to visit another Partners chapter and work together on areas of mutual interest. In accordance with U.S. Department of State priority areas, we prioritize funding travel grants activities that:
- Engage youth
- Promote economic empowerment and social inclusion
- Increase and strengthen university partnerships
Funds are available for activities outside these priority areas, but in limited quantities. Travel grants fund trips that include a minimum of 10 days of professional activities.
Travel grants are reviewed on a first come, first served basis.
