Academic & Career Success

Educating today's students to lead tomorrow's workforce.

Literacy CarnivalTravelers supports initiatives that improve academic and career success for underrepresented youth, specifically targeted at public school children in grades five through 12, students in transition to post-secondary education, and in the post-secondary learning environment.

Travelers addresses community and corporate needs for a skilled workforce, sustained economies, and better quality of life through these focus areas:

  • Middle & High School Academic Achievement -- Travelers funds initiatives that are fostering improved academic achievement for middle and/or high school students.
  • College Preparation & Degree Attainment -- Travelers supports organizations that are building awareness of and personal readiness for post-secondary education and educational initiatives that increase the number of students who attend two- or four-year colleges and/or improve degree completion for underrepresented students.
  • Career Awareness & Readiness -- Travelers supports educational initiatives that are building awareness of and preparation for careers in insurance and financial services.
  • Education Equity -- Travelers supports organizations that are working on a systemic level to reduce academic achievement gaps and enable educational opportunity for low-income and minority students.

Travelers and the Travelers Foundation have provided nearly $50 million since 2009 to help address academic success, increase career preparedness and reduce barriers to high education.
