Yes, WorldStrides is committed to giving every student the opportunity to travel. To support this mission, we offer several financial assistance and fundraising programs. Through these programs, thousands of students who otherwise would not have been able to afford this experience are given the opportunity to travel—and of this, we are extremely proud!

For middle and high school travel, the FLAG financial assistance programs makes nearly $2 million in financial assistance available each year to qualifying families. One simple call to WorldStrides Customer Service at 1-800-468-5899 can tell you how much assistance may be available to you. If you have questions, please contact

For university Capstone groups, our International Financial Assistance program provides scholarships through the Foundation for International Education. To determine what scholarship you may pre-qualify for and receive your customized application, contact the Capstone team at 1-800-422-2368 or

We also make fundraising simple for parents, students, and teachers. Through the Gift of Education, students can send e-cards, letters, and share Facebook links to receive direct donations to their trip. 100% of all the money raised by the student goes directly to their account. It’s the perfect fundraiser!
