Travelers EDGE (Empowering Dreams for Graduation and Employment) provides a unique, holistic approach to education and career exploration for under-represented students. Travelers EDGE Scholars receive financial support, guidance and opportunities for professional development. Established in 2007, Travelers EDGE is the company’s signature education program. Through Travelers’ partnership with Metropolitan State University, the goal is to increase the pipeline of under-represented students prepared careers at Travelers or elsewhere in the insurance and financial services industry.
Peer-reviewed research has consistently shown that a quality education can break down barriers for underrepresented students and provide long-term opportunities for socio-economic growth. Travelers EDGE increases access to higher education and provides students with opportunities to excel. Once enrolled at Metropolitan State, Travelers EDGE students benefit from a broad range of student success services, including financial, academic, personal and career development support.
Our innovative program is specifically designed for nontraditional students. Participants receive individual coaching and complete a career development curriculum to develop their soft skills, professionalism and understanding of the world of work. Participants also gain relevant hands-on experience through internships, informational interviews, job shadowing, networking and professional associations.
