Teen Travel Opportunities

Teen Travel Grant

We have some incredible council-sponsored trips coming up, and so many great GSUSA Destinations to choose from! We want as many of you as possible to go on these adventures, so we are offering the chance to apply for a Travel Grant!

Cadettes, Seniors, and Ambassadors can apply for up to $500 to put towards travel costs! If you add a grant to your saved cookie funds, you could pay for half a trip, or maybe even an ENTIRE trip!

Both girls in troops and individually-registered members are eligible to apply for this grant once per year. Applications are due annually on November 15 and March 15 to be considered. See the application for other details and exclusions.

To apply, send the completed form to Amanda M. Johnson at the Knoxville Service Center. It’s important to fill the application out entirely, and to read all directions.

Of course, you can call us at any time with questions at 800-474-1912.

Applications can also be emailed to or mailed to the Knoxville Service Center.
