Matador Youth Scholarship Essays

About Matador’s Youth Scholarship Fund
Because so many young people lack the resources to travel, Matador has created a travel scholarship for low-income, urban high school students.

The recipients of the scholarship are chosen from a group of high school juniors who have completed the Coro Exploring Leadership Program, an innovative youth leadership program that trains low-income, urban high school juniors to become changemakers in their school and neighborhood communities.

To supplement their scholarships, they are required to raise at least $500 of their trip costs. On their return, they produce Travel Reflections that are published here at Matador, and which you can read below.
