“Travel... Explore... Learn... Grow... Transform... Share.”
Lumos means to shine, illuminate or enlighten.
The purpose of the Lumos Award is to transform the lives of young adults ages 18 to 26 by enabling them to embark on a self-designed international working adventure. Recipients explore, engage and immerse themselves in local communities for a minimum of 8 weeks in order to deepen their understanding of an issue, project or idea that impassions them.
Lumos Travel is an illuminating and enlightening experience for award recipients that defines their world view and engages them as citizens of the world and their own community.
