A Newton-based travel and experiential learning organization, Loop Abroad, has set aside 5 scholarships for Newton South students to travel to Thailand next summer. The scholarships are available to all students (freshman to senior) currently enrolled at Newton South. The funds will be awarded to the first five students accepted to the programs and can be applied to any Loop Abroad summer program. Each scholarship covers one third of the tuition cost of any program. In addition, students can save 10% on their tuition costs by enrolling before September 30.
All Loop programs work with the Elephant Nature Park, a globally recognized conservation effort where students can volunteer hands-on with rescued elephants. For the last four years Loop Abroad has been offering summer travel programs in Thailand to students from all over the country and the world. With these five scholarships, Loop Abroad hopes to motivate local students to explore Thailand and engage in the global community. Loop Abroad had three Newton South students participate this past summer. For more information, visit Loop Abroad on the web or call Program Director Jane Cassie @ 617-833-3823.
