Farther Foundation student scholars have traveled near, far and farther, challenging themselves to experience new people, places, ideas, languages and cultures. Program destinations have included top colleges and universities, rugged western wilderness areas and more than twenty countries including China, Thailand, Panama, Argentina, Spain, Ghana, Israel and Jordan.
Of all our program destinations, none are any more foreign or challenging than Tanzania. Our scholarship recipient, Alicia, chose Tanzania precisely so she could immerse herself in something entirely new and challenging. In her application to us, Alicia said that she has not always been outgoing, but meeting new people and experiencing new experiences has more and more become a driving force in her life. She was also eager to participate in a program where she could provide community service. Alicia was referred to us by our great partner, HighSight, and her Tanzania program was led by Putney Student Travel.
