This past summer, 33 eager and deserving students were awarded Farther Foundation scholarships that enabled them to have life-changing experiences across the country and around the world. They studied on college campuses from Stanford to Harvard and had immersive cultural experiences and provided community service in countries including Mongolia, Tanzania, Colombia and Jordan.

Upon their return, Our students share their photos and stories with us, and we share them with you in our annual publication, Reflections, 2017.
