Completed applications and all accompanying information must be received by the New Directions’ office by January 31st for Spring, Summer and Fall tours and by July 31st for all holiday tours. Scholarship funds are limited. In order for the maximum number of applicants to receive scholarships, we ask that the applicant or others contribute as much as possible toward the cost of the tour.
A New Directions’ scholarship committee will review and award scholarships in February and August of each year. You will be notified of their decision no later than 30 days after their meetings. Unfortunately, we are unable to give scholarships to everyone who applies. We constantly fundraise to provide financial assistance for as many people as possible. Most of the money raised goes toward our holiday programs to provide a family-style vacation for those without anywhere to go. The majority of scholarships given are partial gifts in the $500 - $1,000 range. Thank you and good luck! We hope the applicant will be traveling with us soon.
