If you are passionate and want to explore the world, you have come to the right place as the Tortuga Backpacks are proud to announce the Tortuga Backpacks Study Abroad Scholarship. In order to be applying for the scholarship, the candidate must be the full-time undergraduate student in good academic standing at a four-year, degree-granting college or university. Young people deserve to experience the world beyond their college campuses, but not everyone can afford to travel, especially if you’re on a student budget hence the scholarship intended to help those students who cannot afford to travel. The award amount for the scholarship is $1,000.
At Tortuga, the mission is to help you live on your terms, including students studying abroad. When customers purchase luggage from Tortuga for their trips, they are “paying it forward” by funding scholarships for students like you.
The list eligibility criteria are given below:
- Be a U.S. citizen, permanent resident, or currently studying in the US on a student visa
- Be a full-time undergraduate student in good academic standing at a four-year, degree-granting college or university in the U.S.
