Why Join Shoshin Tribe Travel Scholarship?
Here at Shoshin Tribe, we believe the social media age has diluted the true essence of travel and what it really means to be a traveller. Majority of the time when we see travel content online, its showing the glitz and glamour of travel.
The aesthetic, perfectly framed and edited photos, the incredible lust-worthy destinations, the colourful sunsets and flowing dressed. Shoshin Tribe is here to flip the script!

Before and during the three month scholarship, we will ensure all local rules and restrictions are followed and all proper precautions are taken.
This will include:
- All participants are requested to get Covid vaccine before embarking on the journey - A RT-PCR test will be taken every ten days - two weeks during the three months of travel - Majority of travel will be via personal vehicles to avoid public transport and possible transmission - Major cities will be avoided during the travels to reduce risk of coming in contact with Coronavirus
