Ellison Travel Student Scholarship for Graduating Students

Our Youth – Our Future

Ellison Travel Student Scholarship

As part of our commitment to opening minds and hearts through travel, Ellison Travel awards scholarships for post-secondary education. Secondary students in their final year of high school are invited to submit a photo from a tour they have travelled on with Ellison Travel (containing themselves, a tourist attraction and the Ellison Travel logo somewhere in the background – feel free to get creative!). Interested applicants can send to with Subject Header: Ellison Travel Student Scholarship Entry, and include their travel photo, name and school and one or two sentences about what travel means to them). Winners will be drawn at the end of August each year and notified. Please note, photos and feedback may be used for future marketing purposes.

Ellison Travel MusicFest Scholarships

As a sponsor of MusicFest Canada, Ellison Travel & Tours appreciates the value of this exceptional festival and in 2007 began granting cash awards at the festival as chosen by a panel of esteemed festival adjudicators. We look forward to a festival year when students will again travel to the Nationals as we offer Ellison Travel Outstanding Chorister Scholarship & Ellison Travel Vocal Scholarship.

SYTA Youth Foundation

The SYTA Youth Foundation provides student/youth financial resources and programming through travel experiences that impact the lives of tomorrow’s global citizens. The purpose of the Foundation is to design and implement programs that “Give Something Back” to student and youth travellers. The goal is simple – to raise money for students to travel with their schools or youth organizations. Ellison Travel & Tours is proud to be a founding sponsor.

Mary Lynn Higgins Youth Fund

Mary Lynn Higgins Youth Fund provides travel scholarships to students at the elementary and secondary school level. These scholarships are awarded to students in good standing who would otherwise not be able to travel with their class due to financial restrictions. 95% of the recipients are under the age of 13 and due to circumstances out of their control, the financial resources for their educational school trip are not available. They are students who are dedicated in school, are active in fundraising efforts and volunteer in the school community. Sponsoring these students to attend their class trip provides inclusion and boosts self-esteem ensuring equality in education beyond the classroom. Ellison Travel & Tours is proud to be a charter sponsor.
