People To People Ambassador Programs To Provide Educational Travel Scholarships To Five Lucky Students

SPOKANE, Wash., Dec. 21, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- People to People Ambassador Programs, the leader in global educational travel experiences, has partnered with actress and mother, Holly Robinson Peete, to offer five students an educational travel scholarship to participate on a People to People adventure. "Holly's Holiday Global Giveaway" will be announced on "The Wendy Williams Show" on Friday, December 21.

To kick-off the giveaway, Holly and Wendy will present three students from New Jersey, who were affected by Hurricane Sandy, with an early Christmas gift and announce that they are three of the five scholarship recipients.

"I had the opportunity to study abroad at a young age and I believe it is a critical component to ensuring our kids can compete in a globalized world," said Holly Robinson Peete.  "I look forward to allowing my children the same life experience and working with People to People to send five deserving students on the trip of a lifetime." 

Holly is a huge proponent of international travel and plans to send two of her own children on a People to People program this summer.

Two additional scholarships will be awarded via an online contest that launches today. "Holly's Holiday Global Giveaway" is open to full-time students 13 years of age or older in fifth through 12 th grades. Students must compose a 140 character response articulating why they want to travel to their chosen destination. Contest ends on January 15, 2013.    

"We are committed to fostering global awareness through international travel and providing opportunities for all students to travel with our organization, regardless of circumstances," said Peg Thomas, president of People to People Ambassador Programs.  "Holly shares our passion for education and travel and we are so happy to work with her and award five People to People scholarships."

People to People has been providing unique, hands-on travel experiences to students for nearly 50 years to more than 49 countries on all seven continents. According to The Cultural Intelligence Center, a two-to-three week People to People Student Ambassador program increases CQ as much as a full semester of study aboard from an Ivy League school.
