Now Accepting Online Applications for the Expat Youth Scholarship
Clements International is now accepting submissions for its first expatriate youth scholarship competition. Clements will award $10,000 in scholarships to six students who use words and creative media to illustrate life as an expatriate.
The theme of the 2009 Clements International Expat Youth Scholarship is “Life in a Flying House,” inspired by the idea that students who spend their childhoods moving between different countries and cultures acquire unique life experiences.
Each scholarship entry must include an essay of 500 words or more describing how his or her life has been affected by living as an expatriate, accompanied by some form of creative media that supports the essay topic, such as photographs, illustrations, paintings or video. Students between the ages of 12-18 of any nationality who have spent at least two years living outside their home countries are encouraged to apply. All entries are due by May 15 and the winners will be announced in mid-September.
