June 2017 Trover Travel Scholarship

We are inspired every day by the beautiful discoveries you share with us. To honor the vibrancy and value that each of you bring to Trover, we created the $500 Trover Travel Scholarship. Each month, we award it to one traveler who has particularly inspired us with their photos and stories.

This month, we’re thrilled to award the Trover Travel Scholarship to Earth Trekkers!

Who are Earth Trekkers? They’re Tim, Julie, Tyler & Kara, a family of four who spent 13 months traveling the world, and now balance lives packed with work & school while traveling whenever possible to “explore every nook and cranny of this awesome planet.” Some of their recent travels include Croatia, Montenegro, Bosnia & Herzegovina, and the American Southwest. Whew! Sounds amazing!
