Tortuga Study Abroad Scholarship

Young people deserve to experience the world beyond their college campuses, but not everyone can afford to travel, especially if you’re on a student budget.

The Tortuga Study Abroad Scholarship is awarded biannually to passionate students who want to explore the world.

At Tortuga, our mission is to help you live on your terms, including students studying abroad. When customers purchase luggage from us for their trips, they are “paying it forward” by funding scholarships for students like you.
