Professional Educator’s Assistance Recognition (PEAR) Scholarship

As the nation's largest educational travel institution for older adults, Road Scholar is proud to announce a unique opportunity for past and present educators to take part in one of their Road Scholar travel programs. With the generous support of donors, a special kind of assistance specifically for active and retired educators has been created called the "Professional Educator's Assistance Recognition" scholarship - or "PEAR" for short. If you are over 50 years of age, are currently working in or have retired from any educational organization or system and are facing financial barriers preventing you from participating in a Road Scholar program, you are eligible to apply. For more information, go to the Retirees Association Announcements page.
