Adventure Angels Abundance Scholarship

2016 Scholarship Winner
COLIBRI SPANISH SCHOOL (NICARAGUA)
“I was so excited to win the Adventure Angel Abundance Scholarship in 2016. The opportunity brought me closer to the adventure travel industry and I was able to really appreciate how it works. The sessions helped me understand tourism from many different points of views and boosted my confidence in my own endeavor. I must admit I was also very confused and overwhelmed which is a good thing because a mind in chaos gives the soul an opportunity to reconsider and redefine. Upon my return I knew I had to make adjustments to the processes within my start-up operation. My greatest accomplishments at the ATWS in Alaska were getting a new client and cultivating a strong bond with the adventure travel tribe. Blessings to the “Angels” who open doors.”
— Noelia Corrales, Owner
“We are thrilled and proud to announce our second scholarship to support a female business owner from an emerging destination to attend ATWS2017. We are committed to advancing ATTA’s goal of recognizing the power of women in travel and taking away the unique obstacles they face. The full and equal participation of women is probably the biggest challenge to be overcome to ensure the long-term success of the adventure travel industry.” Dana Johnson & Judy Karwacki, Adventure Angels
