Kaleidoscope Adventures, Inc. is proud to announce during this past spring season, nine students were awarded the company’s annual Stellar Student Scholarship.

Based on the belief that travel is essential to a complete education, it is the goal of Kaleidoscope Adventures to make a positive difference, educating students through travel.
According to Robin Parker, President/CEO of Kaleidoscope Adventures, “By providing financial support to these students through the scholarship fund, the team at Kaleidoscope Adventures hopes to encourage students who would otherwise be unable to travel, to participate in their school trip.” The scholarship is awarded to students based on financial need, academic eligibility and dedication to their school.
