Be a Scholarship Hero: Sponsor a student to Study Abroad

To increase access for all youth, OneWorld Now! works tirelessly to be able to offer low-income, underserved students transformational international opportunities on full- or partial-scholarship. OWN has leveraged over 1.5M US dollars in scholarships in the last 13 years, sending over 300 low-income high school youth abroad on language, culture, and service programs around the world from China to Qatar and Morocco to Jordan.

OWN negotiates with generous partners, who like OWN are committed to increasing diversity abroad and to offering programs at lower costs. We look to institutions for further funding and negotiate with airlines for bulk discounts. These efforts bring the cost down, but it is still out of reach for our underserved students. To further increase accessibility to study abroad, we’re turning to our community.

Be an OWN Scholarship Hero. Sponsor a student to Study Abroad.

OWN is launching a month-long campaign in February 2015. To reach our goal, we are looking for 50 people to contribute $1,000 each to be an OWN Scholarship Hero. As an Scholarship Hero:


  • A scholarship will be established in your name – or in memory of someone of your choice – and awarded to an OWN student for a study abroad trip.
  • The recipient of your scholarship will send you photos and updates from abroad.
  • You’ll be invited to join students for a post-trip presentation in the fall of 2015.
  • You’ll be listed on the OWN website as a member of the OWN Scholarship Hero Fund.

As we plan for the 2015 study abroad program, OWN’s goal is to send 50 of our students to Morocco and China on scholarship.

Make study abroad accessible for these youth, become a Scholarship Hero!
