October 2019 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 brings 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 Jakub Bors!


Meet Jakub Bors! This explorer’s passion for our beautiful world is apparent in his vivid photography. He has no shortage of spectacular scenes to shoot near his home in Scotland’s incredible Isle of Skye.

To share his love of photography and help feed his wanderlust, Jakub created Clever Photographer, where fellow shutterbugs can improve their skills through online-courses and photo tools. We asked Jakub to share a few insights on his favorite finds with the Trover community. Take it away, Jakub! Continue reading
