Silicon Valley Community Foundation/Sabre Passport to Freedom Survivor Scholarship

Inspired by the extraordinary stories of survival shared at the September 2012 Passport to Freedom launch event, Sabre committed to create a scholarship program dedicated to making post-secondary education and vocational training attainable for trafficking survivors. In 2014, Sabre announced the first ever academic scholarship fund created especially for human trafficking survivors. Our vision is to help pave the way for secure and sustainable employment opportunities. With the support of our travel industry and technology partners, the long-term vision is to offer job placement opportunities for scholarship program graduates. Must be a human trafficking survivor. Must be a high school graduate or GED recipient; planning to enroll or enrolled in a two- or four-year college or vocational school on a part-time or full-time basis (as defined by the school of attendance); have a minimum cumulative grade point average of 2.75 on a 4.0 scale, if a current graduating high school senior or college student; and a United States citizen or eligible non-citizen (eligible non-citizens include United States legal residents or T-visa holders).
