The purpose of our FUNd trips and Events are to raise funds for The Global Incite Foundation's scholarship campaign. We have a goal to raise $100,000 by December 31, 2017 to contribute to our scholarship fund. These funds will be used to support exemplary, yet underrepresented students with a financial need to study abroad. Although all of our trips are both fun and contribute to student scholarships, through our FUNd trips we're able to offer the greatest percentage of contribution to "The Global Incite Foundation" scholarship fund.
Our planned FUNd Trips/Events for 2017 are as follows: NE Ski Trip, Jamaican Excursion, Ghana Cultural Exploration, Costa Rica Sampler and an Iceland getaway. We will be updating information pertaining to our FUNd trips/events periodically. Please check back and also register (button below) to receive information as soon as it is published.
In today's increasingly globalized world, international study experiences have become more of a necessity than a luxury. More students are beginning to take advantage of international study opportunities, however, there is still a huge disparity between the number of minority students who are able to participate in these experiences. Through our campaign we will be able to provide additional scholarships for underrepresented students and those with a financial need.
