Webster World Traveler Program

Did you know that you could receive a FREE roundtrip plane ticket* when you study at one of our international campuses or international partner institutions?

You can!  Webster University encourages you to take advantage of our special program when applying to study abroad at one of our unique international campuses. The Webster World Traveler Program (WWTP) helps to provide students with the opportunity to become well-educated world travelers.

In order to be eligible for the WWTP award, students must submit all application materials by the Study Abroad deadlines listed below. This award is not guaranteed and applicants must meet all eligibility requirements and conditions to receive the award. Please refer to the WWTP form (Study Abroad Application) for complete listings of all eligibility requirements and conditions of the award.

Good Luck!

Students who do not receive the WWTP award are responsible for making their own travel arrangements.  These students will be provided with the suggested travel dates by their study abroad advisor. Students making their own airline reservations should inform their advisor of the travel details after booking is confirmed.

*Conditions and restrictions apply. Please see the WWTP form on the Study Abroad Application for more details.
