08 Jun Peer Funding for College Tours & Visits
San Francisco, Calif., June 7, 2013—Custom College Visits, a company that offers personalized, in-depth campus visits and multi-day travel itineraries for college-bound students and their families, has entered into a partnership with Project Travel, a peer-funding platform that makes educational travel possible.
Working with Project Travel will allow Custom College Visits to offer its services to students who otherwise might not have the opportunity to visit colleges that are situated at a significant distance from their hometowns.
According to Janice Caine, founder of Custom College Visits, “visiting in-person is still the best way for a high school student to get a sense of a college’s energy, culture and academic environment. Our partnership with Project Travel will make it possible for more families to benefit from our customized college visit planning services. And raising funds from the community with the support of Project Travel will make the student experience that much more enriching.”
