Student Travel Application

Farther Foundation partners with organizations to enable high school aged students in and around the Chicago area to participate in education travel experiences. Our application process requires the cooperation of the individual student and an Education Partner to complete and submit an application for support. Farther Foundation support is awarded to the Education Partner and/or the travel program provider, not to an individual student. Applications must be received on or before March 31.

Read our student travel program guidelines carefully.  If you feel that you meet all the eligibility requirements, we look forward to receiving your application. Make sure the application is complete before submitting it. Each space in the application must be filled in in order to submit. If the question does not apply in your case, please type \"NA\" in the space provided.

If you do not receive an email confirming the receipt of your completed application, please contact us.
