Travelers EDGE® 15th Anniversary

In 2022, Travelers EDGE (Empowering Dreams for Graduation and Employment) – one of Travelers’ signature programs – celebrates 15 years of impact as a sustainable school-to-career pipeline supporting students from high school through college in Connecticut, Georgia, Maryland, and Minnesota. Since inception, Travelers EDGE has helped more than 300 students complete bachelor’s degrees, and more than 100 of those graduates have gone on to pursue a career at Travelers. To commemorate this milestone year, Travelers is coming together with Travelers EDGE scholars, alumni and ecosystem partners to reflect on the past 15 years and to set the groundwork for the Next Generation of Travelers EDGE.

When you intern at Travelers, you aren’t just a college student – you are fully immersed in the company. I felt like I belonged. When I’m in downtown Hartford for class, I look at the Travelers Tower and I think, ‘I was in there. I worked there.’
