New Scholarship for Student Travelers

As the Family Travel Forum 2017 TeenTravel Writing Scholarship submission period draws to a close July 14, we are happy to share the news that (our sponsor) Allianz Global Assistance USA, a leading travel insurance provider, hosts their own scholarship program, ScholarTrips. 

ScholarTrips gives students the opportunity to travel abroad and experience new places and cultures. The company has provided over $150,000 in travel grants to students across the county.

Last year, students were asked to submit a video or essay response to a question about the impact travel may have on a person. The contest was open from October 10, 2016 through November 10, 2016 to students over 14-years-old who are U.S. residents.

"We believe that all students should have the opportunity to travel abroad and to experience the world they live in,” said Joe Mason, chief marketing officer of Allianz Global Assistance USA. "We are proud to offer this great opportunity to students across the country and we sincerely wish entries the best of luck."

Allianz Global Assistance offers travel insurance through most major U.S. airlines, leading travel agents, online travel agencies and directly to consumers.
