Below, find the blueprint of our 2021 NomadMania Scholarship drive, which resulted in 8 scholarships being awarded, 2 to nationals of Rwanda and 6 to nationals of Ukraine. We will be relaunching our scholarship drive later in 2023.



NomadMania was initially launched in 2012 to encourage travel, to assist travellers in keeping track of their travels and to provide ideas and inspiration of what to see through NomadMania’s Series. NomadMania is the only place where highly ranked travellers are verified to ensure their travel claims are valid while at the same time being the authority on the people who have been to every country.

The goal of NomadMania is to create a community of avid travellers, to educate about the world as well as to help people with few means to travel more. As a registered not-for-profit in Greece, NomadMania’s charity division aims to help people from less privileged backgrounds experience more of the world. In order to help create a truly diverse community, we encourage donations from individuals, corporations and foundations.


NomadMania Scholarship Fund Overview

2021 will be the inaugural year for NomadMania to provide travel scholarship grants to university students who are first-time travellers from countries with a relatively recent experience of enduring conflict, to and from which the NomadMania team feels travel can take place with adequate safety.

Specifically, the eligible countries are (in alphabetical order):

  • Afghanistan
  • Bosnia and Herzegovina
  • Colombia
  • Iraq
  • Liberia
  • Rwanda
  • Sri Lanka
  • Ukraine

The NomadMania Scholarships are available for university students who have already successfully completed at least their second year of study in their country of citizenship. They must be both a citizen of and studying in one of the above countries. The Scholarships are geared towards those with few financial means. With the NomadMania Scholarship fund, we hope to encourage everyone to follow their travel aspirations, despite obstacles that may inhibit these goals.
