 Stellar Student Scholarship Application



Why Should Students Travel?

Travel is critical to understanding the world around us and student travel is one of the best teaching tools available to educators.  We are a global society, connected by technology but nothing can replace the human experience of engaging with a culture that may differ from our own.  Even visiting a different city in your own state can provide cultural awareness.

The KA Concepts team believes all students deserve the opportunity to explore the world as part of a well-rounded education.  Travel is proven to positively impact academic and social performance. Kids who travel have a stronger sense of their place in the world, are more tolerant and respectful of others, are more collaborative, and adapt more readily to new situations.
