Step by Step Scholarship Fund for Humanitarian Travel strives to expand humanitarian outreach by providing travel reimbursement scholarships to undergraduate and graduate students who participate in humanitarian service throughout the world. Offers of scholarship are 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.

TO BE ELIGIBLE FOR A SCHOLARSHIP, AN APPLICANT MUST BE:
- A current graduate student in health-related studies.
- Participating in global health outreach sponsored by a recognized humanitarian organization.
- Willing to submit a follow-up Trip Reflection Form (see requirement here).
Completed applications will be accepted on an ongoing basis. Please allow 4-6 weeks of processing time prior to your program payment deadlines to be considered and to allow for time to make payments to organizations that require advance payment for participation.
The travel scholarship will be made in the form of a reimbursement for allowable out of pocket expenses to include: airfare and lodging.
