Thank you for visiting our webpage!

Dear Visitor,

Effective May 14, 2024, First Trip Inc is now the Council on Representative Leadership Abroad (CORLA) in Washington, DC.


We are a nonprofit, nonpartisan, membership organization that partners with academic institutions and global thought leaders to ensure America’s next generation of global professionals broadly reflect the country’s diverse populace and intellectual perspectives.

For years, as First Trip Inc., we conducted globalized programs at a dozen colleges and universities throughout the Washington, DC metropolitan area and beyond, to support international career mapping workshops, global curriculum enhancement initiatives, and unique travel scholarships offered to students who are traditionally underrepresented in America’s study abroad population.

Though most core programs have continued during the transition, the travel scholarship program has been discontinued. However, we encourage student travelers to visit the Fund for Education Abroad’s website, where very similar scholarship awards are offered each semester!

We also encourage students to see an additional list of travel scholarships compiled by the NAFSA: Association of International Educators embedded here

Please consider visiting our new website to learn more about how you and/or your organization can support representative leadership initiatives in international business and foreign policy!
