We are excited to announce that Wanderlust Revolution has Launched our Spring 2020 Passport Support Scholarship! We are so excited to give out this bi-annual scholarship to ensure another Detroiter can see the world. Please spread the word to anyone you know who could use our support.
Purpose: To help native Detroiters pursue personal and intellectual growth through international experiences,Wanderlust Revolution offers a scholarship intended to support the cost of passport fees for individuals who would like to see the world all in support of one distinct goal: decolonizing travel culture, normalizing travel among people of color and using traveling as a form of resistance.
The program provides scholarships of up to $145.00, an amount intended to equal the application andprocessing cost for a United States Passport, to all native Detroiters who are applying for a passport for thefirst time.
