2020 NEXTGEN Travel Fellowship Info

No applications are accepted to the 2020 NEXTGEN: ‘Pagbabalik’ (Coming Home) Travel Scholarship at this time. Travel to the Philippines for summer 2020 has been postponed to 2021. The recent global pandemic of COVID 19 virus has made travel to the Philippines untenable. Please stay tuned for more details for next year’s 2021 NEXTGEN: ‘Pagbabalik’ Travel Scholarship Application. Next year’s travel application is slated to open this Fall 2020. The Bayanihan Foundation sincerely apologizes for this schedule change. Please bookmark this page for more details.

In the fall 2020, the Bayanihan Foundation will open applications to Filipino Americans and others to join next year’s Bayanihan Foundation’s 2021 NEXTGEN Program tentatively scheduled for June 19 to July 3, 2021. Stay tuned for more details.

Since 2015, the Bayanihan Foundation traveled with 12 young Filipino Americans and they visited historic sites in the Philippines; learned more about their Filipino heritage; connected with the foundation’s sustainable projects; and encouraged them to give back to the community, locally and globally.

In 2021, we plan to bring another cohort of young Filipino Americans to the Philippines. This immersion trip is coordinated to promote diaspora philanthropy; know more about Filipino culture; learn about the foundation’s sustainable projects; connect and develop the participant’s potential sustainable projects; and connect with relatives and the participant’s heritage.
