At AllTheRooms, we are passionate about travel. In fact, we are travel fiends. We understand the benefits of travel and we find it an important supplement to any education. But not everyone has the means or opportunity to travel, that’s why we’re giving financial aid to anyone seeking to study abroad through their university. To be eligible, submit a 600-800 word essay on what inspires you to travel. We will announce a winner prior to the start of 2017 Fall Semester.
