A recent study by College Finance estimates 15% of students are taking a gap year amid the pandemic. Similarly, EnRoute Edu is gearing up for another larger crop of gap year students going into next year.
That same study found that an intentional gap year can improve job prospects: 67% of hiring managers believed it beneficial for students and recent graduates to take a gap year amid the pandemic and 21% were more likely to hire a candidate who had taken a gap year.
- Nominate a student for an EnRoute scholarship: In recognition of the underrepresentation of Black, Indigenous and People of Color (BIPOC) in the gap year space, we are opening a merit-based BIPOC scholarship program.
- Get Trained in Gap Years: Develop a broad understanding of the gap year option through EnRoute Edu’s Gap Year Training Library. This self-paced course is designed for public and private school counselors, educators, IECs and youth mentors.
