Farther Foundation believes that summer enrichment programs are essential in helping high school students, especially those from at-risk populations, achieve their highest potential. Furthermore, we believe that programs that give those students an opportunity to spend time away from home can be the most significant in helping them to gain the confidence and independence they will need in taking the next step in the education.
Travel is singular in in its ability to open the eyes and unbind the aspirations of students whose experiences rarely escape the boundaries of their neighborhoods. Farther Foundation provides opportunities for students to participate in educational travel programs. They interact with individuals with diverse backgrounds and experiences, become immersed in new cultures and experiences, learn and develop skills, engage in community service, cultivate leadership potential and attain personal growth.
To help students, parents, counselors and advisors find just the right program, we have compiled an extensive online directory of enrichment travel providers. The directory is searchable by name, category or key word. So whether you are interested in archeology, Thailand, rock climbing or Brown University, all you have to do is type in the key word to search for programs that match your criteria.
We are always adding to our directory to make it a better resource. Sometimes we find programs on our own, and sometimes students bring them to our attention. Two program providers we just added this week, Emory University and Davidson College, came to our attention because student applicants to our scholarship program hope to attend the programs this summer.
Farther Foundation and the students we serve depend on the tax deductible donations from people like you to make these life changing experiences possible.

Farther Foundation is a 501(c)(3) charitable organization providing scholarships to low-income students to inspire them to reach their highest aspirations through educational travel experiences.
