Bring equity to student immersion travel opportunities

We rely on contributions from supporters like you to help us increase access to our programs for individuals from all backgrounds.

Give More Students Access to Language Immersion Abroad

As a nonprofit organization, Xperitas is committed to increasing access to our programs regardless of an individual's or school group's financial situation. Whether through financial aid, scholarships or special grant-funded programs, we're dedicated to supporting all individuals on their journey to global citizenship. To make this possible, we rely on the contributions of dedicated supporters who understand the lifelong impact Xperitas cross-cultural immersion programs can have for our participants.

Our Global Learners Scholarship Program creates opportunities for under-resourced students and schools to participate in short-term cultural and language immersion experiences by providing scholarships that cover 80% of the cost of the experience. These experiences have been designed to help students increase their global competency, develop leadership skills and improve self-confidence and independence. The education component begins months before travel and the students are engaged in reflection activities during and after their immersion experience. To date, more than $866,500 has been awarded to schools to fund cultural and language immersion experiences through Xperitas.

Hear from a Global Learners Scholarship Recipient

In May 2016, a group of students and teachers from Face to Face Academy in St. Paul, Minn, traveled on an Xperitas Community Partnership Program to Xiloxochico, Mexico, with the support of an Xperitas Global Learners Scholarship for more than $24,000. Hear one participant's reflection on the life-changing experience:

“Today is our last day in Mexico, and it’s definitely bittersweet to me. I’m excited to go home and see my family, but I’m going to miss being here. Every day was like a new adventure. Everyone was so kind and patient with us, and it was amazing to get a glimpse of peoples’ lives here in Mexico. I never realized how similar we all were, but seeing that reminded me that we are all just humans trying our best to get through our crazy lives. Since I’ve been here I feel like I’ve learned a lot, not only about the communities here in Mexico, but also about myself. I’ve struggled with depression for quite a while now, and while I’ve been here it’s hardly affected me at all. I don’t know if it was from all the generous people, being able to help out in a small way, not using my phone, being outside and exercising, or all of the above, but it’s been nice to have a week of genuine happiness. I’m so grateful to have gone on this trip, and hopefully it’s the first step to a (possibly) bright future. Thank you, Xperitas!"
