About

HI Minnesota/St. Paul Travel Scholarship Committee Members will provide oversight for and manage the HI USA travel scholarship program in their local community. Committee members will be collectively tasked with developing their local program with the support of HI USA staff and resources.

Starting in Jan 2017, we will begin recruitment for our international scholarship called Explore the World. This scholarship includes awarding $2,000 for international travel. Travel must include either an educational and/or volunteer component. We are looking to recruit less traveled individuals and/or individuals with less resources for travel to encourage travel and exploration for all.

  • Assist in travel scholarship planning efforts

  • Assist in marketing the travel scholarship program in local community

  • Participate in the selection of local travel scholarship recipients using our standard grading system

  • Work with HI USA staff member(s) in implementing the program

Desired skills, qualifications:

  • Connections and familiarity with local community, including local universities, colleges and organizations that serve the 18-30 age range and/or communities that have less access to travel and/or less resources for travel

  • Leadership experience

  • Marketing and social media experience

Time Commitment:

  • In general, approximately 3-5 hours per month

  • We will meet in person once a month at the hostel and then via conference call and email as needed
