The purpose of this initiative is to fund students to travel to communities where they will participate in service projects. Our belief is that US students get much more out of giving to a less-privileged community than the community receives from them. When they touch the lives of others, their lives get touched as well. However, many US students do not have the monetary means to travel, and therefore never have the opportunity to be moved by people through service. Our goal is to grant them this opportunity.

By accepting the travel awards, the students agree to (1) write a report and/or create a video about how the trip impacted themselves and others and (2) to fund another students' travel when they are able (~5 years after graduation).

We accept applicants from established student organizations. UT for REED is our first partner organization.
