We want to ensure that all students have the opportunity to visit campus and connect with our community.
We recognize that cost can be a prohibitive factor when it comes to visiting colleges, so we offer a limited number of travel scholarships each year for students who are unable to afford the expense of traveling to campus. The travel scholarship covers individual round-trip transportation, all meals, and accommodations while they are a guest on campus.
Bryn Mawr is committed to identifying and enrolling students who represent a diversity of cultural, educational, and geographic experiences. The Travel Scholar and Road Scholar Programs are designed to support high school students who come from historically underrepresented backgrounds, including African-American, Asian-American, Hispanic/Latinx, Native American, and First-Generation students. Compelling candidates have demonstrated interest in women’s education and will exhibit the core characteristics of a Bryn Mawr student: a driven and passionate learner; one who is inspired by and celebrates differences; and who seeks to transform themselves, their community, and the world.
We offer two fly-in programs -- one for juniors and one for seniors
During the program, Travel Scholars will attend various virtual admissions workshops, academic panels, and social events.
To be eligible for the program, students must:
- Reside in the U.S. or its associate territories
- Be enrolled as a high school junior in the spring of 2022
- Complete the Travel Scholar Program application
- Submit a school transcript
- Counselor recommendation (optional)
