We want to offer select scholarships for travel to India to students that otherwise would have trouble finding the opportunity. Be sure to honestly list all travel, including future plans, and tell us a little bit about the trip. We want to understand who you went with and why you traveled. If we later find that you have not told us of all your travel, this can disqualify you from the trip to India.
