Calling all expat kids: Clements International offers US$10,000 in 2010 Expat Youth Scholarships

With globalization,  more and more families have transplanted their roots (permanently or temporarily) in other countries.  Our kids are getting exposed to different cultures which shape their life experiences and it is always interesting to hear these Third Culture Kids voice out their views on the world in which we live. 

Clements International is accepting entries for its 2nd annual Expat Youth Scholarship program for expatriate students. US$10,000 will be shared between six winning students, aged 12-18, of any nationality, who have spent the last two consecutive years living outside of their home country.

The scholarship contest offers expat students a chance to share their experiences of living in a foreign country through a 500-750 word essay and a creative image answering the question "Where would you go in your flying house?" The "flying house" is inspired by the idea that students who spend their childhoods moving between different countries and cultures acquire unique life experiences.  The scholarship contest offers expat students a chance to use their experiences living in a foreign country to imagine where their journey might take them next.

The scholarship entry deadline is Thursday, May 13, 2010.
