Medellin Colombia— AllTheRooms, the world’s largest accommodations metasearch site, has established a new study abroad scholarship to MiraCosta students. With the mission of promoting the benefits of travel to students, the Room to Travel Scholarship provides a $1,000 award to help students pay for their study abroad costs.
“Our organization is staffed by travelers, representing countries from three different continents, that appreciate the benefits of travel. Therefore, we have made it our mission to promote youth travel by offering monetary aid to help students fund their travels” says Community Outreach Manager, Victor Bosselaar.
The travel/tech startup will award the scholarship via winning essay submission on the topic of ‘what inspires the student to travel’. Winning essays will be selected based on creativity, clarity, uniqueness, and writing style. Scholarship submission is eligible to students currently enrolled in or intend to enroll in a study abroad program for the 2017-2018 academic year at MiraCosta. Deadline for essay submissions is August 1, 2017 and awarded funds will be distributed prior to the Fall Semester start date. Students can submit their essays on the Room to Travel Scholarship site, alltherooms.com/w/room-to-travel-scholarship.
