Youth Travel Scholarship
As part of our effort to encourage youth exchanges for students who may not otherwise be able to afford travel opportunities to our sister cities, the Dayton Sister City Committee has established a fund through the Dayton Foundation to help support youth travel. Depending on an applicant's merit and need, scholarships are available ranging from $500 to the full cost of a student's trip.
Students who apply must complete the normal application process stipulated by the program coordinator, a well as an additional essay.
All application materials (including scholarship application essay) should be submitted through the program coordinator.

If you'd like to make a donation to support our program, you can do so through the donation link on our website and simply specify "Sister City Travel Scholarship" in the memo line, or mail a check to the address in the footer of our website.
Our annual Sister City Soiree is another way you can help us raise money for our student travel scholarships!
