Step by Step Scholarship Fund for Humanitarian Travel

Step by Step: Scholarship Fund for Humanitarian Travel offers scholarships to graduate students to help offset their travel expenses incurred through participation in global health outreach.

Experience has shown that students engaged in meaningful humanitarian service will develop into professionals that continue to give back throughout their careers. As graduate professional students grow through service to under-served populations, they develop a desire that propels them to serve again and again.

By making it possible for as many students as possible to have the opportunity for a health outreach experience, we will have a generation graduating with a commitment to give to their communities or to international populations in need.
