We believe life is about more than surviving, we believe in Thriving. 

We believe there is more to life than just seeing, we believe in Experiencing.

Most of all we believe Travel can be TRANSFORMATIONAL 

Our Philosophy: 

Give the gift of travel,

the gift that will keep on giving for years to come. 

Coupled with the desire to find a sustainable and ethical way to give-back, along with the known impact travel can have we have created the: 

Betty Jean 

Scholarship Fund

How it Works: 



5% of every Outer Edge Travel purchase goes towards our Scholarship fund. 


Scholarships are awarded "at-cost." Meaning, when someone receives a scholarship and goes on a trip we do not financially profit, but we do get to enjoy their presence


All Donations go Directly into the Betty Jean Scholarship Fund

Does this mean someone on my trip may be a scholarship recipient?

Absolutely, and we love that! We believe this enhances our ability to understand others and move in the world with an added sense of humility. We keep all of our scholarship recipient information confidential, however, we are so happy when they share their stories. We leave it up to the recipient to choose when or if they find it appropriate to disclouse that they are a scholarship recipient.

How does the scholarship fund work?

Our scholarship fund has several revenue sources: 1. Each trip or event has a 2% donation to the scholarship fund. Yes, we know that means our trips may have a high price tag, but we are commited to giving the gift of travel and experience that help others live to their full potential. 2. Outer Edge Travel donates as well. A percentage of our yearly earnings go back into the fund. We know what it takes to scrape together travel funds. We also believe that our trips can be transformational, so why not pay it forward? 3. We allow participants to donate more when checking out with us. We appreciate your extension of generosity. 4. We accept donations at any time of the year, all you have to do it click here. All of these streams flow into one pool of funds. We award partial and full scholarships based upon our quarterly cycle. This means four times a year our panel reviews applications and provides awards based upon the funds we have available. This means, that we can only award based upon what is in the account. So we appreciate every donation we get!

What does a scholarship cover?

Both partial and full scholarships cover only part or all of the cost of one of our "Adventure" listings. This means that recipients still have to cover all other costs, including, but no limitted to: airfare, travelers insurance, gear, added meals, etc.

Why have a scholarship fund?

It is just one way we can do good in the world. It aligns with our core principles to provide opportunities for Education, Experience, and Empowerment. We know there are plenty of ways to give back, but knowing how transormational these opportunities are we would love to have another person join our tribe.
