Journey Grants


Journey Grants are a unique program to Jewell that provide the freedom and funding for you to pursue your passions in far-flung places. Apply after your sophomore year for a self-designed adventure. Transformative experiences, academic endeavors and journeys of self-discovery await.

Where Will Your Journey Grant Take You?

Jewell students have traveled to 49 countries for Journey Grant experiences. You can help villagers in Honduras develop sustainable food sources, volunteer in an African orphanage, shadow a physician in Hawaii, fund living expenses for an internship or research at Glacier National Park in for a senior thesis. If you can imagine it, you can do it.

  • academic enrichment
  • leadership development
  • civic engagement
