Remembering FEA Founding Chairman, David T. Parry

Named for FEA Founder and Chairman Emeritus, David T. Parry, the David T. Parry Founders Scholarship honors Dave’s dedication to educational travel and equity. Owner of Academic Travel Abroad with his wife and business partner, Susan, for forty years, Dave continued to lead educational travel tours through the Swiss Alps and elsewhere well into his 80s. In 2010, Dave and his team founded the Fund for Education Abroad to increase opportunities for underrepresented U.S. college students to study abroad through scholarship. We honor Dave’s wisdom, spirit, and legacy with the establishment of David T. Parry Founders Scholarship to ensure the continuation of exchange and exploration for the next generation of Americans.
