Finn Wardman World Explorer Fund

Donation protected
On April 8th, my son, Finn Wardman born 2002 in Bermuda died in a tragic accident in St Legier, Switzerland.

Finn was a proud Bermudian who had travelled all over the world, and was attending his second year at Durham University in northern England. Finn was passionate about adventure and travel, while also being a serious student. He was studying business administration and was on track to complete his studies with a first. He had planned to do a gap year after finishing his degree. He was also planning to study a year abroad in Madrid, Spain, and take all native speaking Spanish language business courses. He had been accepted into this program weeks before his death.

Partnered with the various schools such as Costa Verde International School in Mexico, Bermuda Scholarships and other yet to be named education centres, we are trying to raise $100,000 as a seed fund to start a cultural and education based scholarship for students that want, but can’t afford to travel before, in between or after their studies.
We want to change people’s lives, one student at a time, in perpetuity.

Just as the training to run a 100 mile ultra marathon starts with a single step, this ambitious scholarship program needs your help to start changing the life of a student in Finn’s loving memory. Donate anything that you can.

The scholarship program will fund financially challenged students to have a once in a lifetime experiential learning program that they ordinarily would never be able to afford or even think of.

Embark on a Journey of Discovery and Growth with Finn Wardman World Explorer Student Grant

Explore the World, Expand Your Horizons

At Finn Wardman Scholarships, we believe in the transformative power of travel and adventure. The program we wish to build will be designed to offer young individuals a unique opportunity to explore the world, pushing the boundaries of their comfort zones and fostering a spirit of discovery.

Experiential Learning Beyond Classroom Walls

The scholarship ideas are not just about visiting new places; they are about immersive, experiential learning. Participants will engage in activities that challenge them intellectually and emotionally, ensuring a learning experience that extends far beyond the traditional classroom environment.

Volunteering and Community Building: Making a Difference

We are committed to fostering a sense of global citizenship. Our scholars will have the opportunity to volunteer in diverse communities, contributing to meaningful projects that make a real difference. This hands-on involvement allows for personal growth while positively impacting the lives of others. We are teaming up with new partners to help curate a guided experience.

Leadership Training for Tomorrow's Changemakers

The program we want to build will emphasise leadership training, equipping young adults with the skills necessary to lead, inspire, and make impactful changes in their communities and beyond. Through various workshops and real-world challenges, participants will develop the confidence and competence to emerge as future leaders.

Cultural Immersion: A Gateway to Global Understanding

A core component of the scholarship will be experiencing and understanding different cultures. Participants will immerse themselves in new environments, learning from local traditions, languages, and lifestyles. This cultural exchange is vital in fostering global understanding and empathy.

The Finn Wardman World Explorer Student Grant will be more than a scholarship; it's a journey towards personal and professional growth. It's an adventure that combines travel, experiential learning, community service, leadership development, and cultural exchange to create a well-rounded, transformative experience. Where children that couldn’t ordinarily have a life changing opportunity, we make those dreams happen.
