Sign Up Information:
There are the three ways to sign up:
Put down a $500 deposit and then pay the remaining balance 110 days before the date of travel. This option is recommended for those who are unable to do monthly payments and are looking to fundraise the remaining balance or are waiting on funds to cover the cost later. Click here to learn more.
Put down a $99 deposit and then pay the remaining balance on a monthly payment schedule that goes to 60 days before the date of travel. Click here to learn more.
Advantage Payment Plan: Please call 800-771-5353 for full details and further consultation. To summarize the Advantage Payment Plan, you can put down a minimum $199 down payment and then make a $199 a month installment until it is paid off even after the date of travel. One stipulation is that you must have 40% of the total payment in by the date of travel. It is strongly advised that a larger down payment is deposited in the beginning so if you choose to do the $199 a month plan, you can reach 40% prior to the date of travel. This program closes at the end of September but other payment schedules may become available at later dates. Please see the website for up-to-date information or call 800-771-5353 for more details.
Need financial support? For those looking to find ways to help pay for the trip, there are two options to consider:
FLAG scholarship: You can earn up to $600 off the overall cost if you have an AGI of $85,000 or less. This one will also close at the end of September so qualifying applicants should sign up as early as possible.
Online fundraising: Once you are signed up, you can log into your trip account and hit the fund-raising tab. From there, you can send out electronic invites to anyone and everyone and have the donate directly into your online trip account. In previous WorldStrides trips, students were able to raise half or more of the cost through this alone! Click here to find out more.
