Are you looking for scholarships to help you cover costs next year? Here’s one for expats that you might not have heard about yet. The deadline is March 28th, so get your creative juices flowing!
Have you heard about our Expat Youth Scholarship? The Expat Youth Scholarship (EYS) is a philanthropic program sponsored by Clements Worldwide to award six scholarships each year to expat students from 13 to 21 years old.
This year marks the 10th anniversary of EYS, with over USD 100,000 donated during this time to help these young scholars complete their educational goals.
If you are an expat and have or know children between these ages, they could win up to USD 3,000.
Clements Worldwide encourages students living abroad to become cultural ambassadors, promoting cross-border understanding, friendship, and peace. This scholarship rewards efforts of young people around the world to live up to these goals. This year, the Scholarship is looking to capture these experiences via any chosen visual representation (such as videos, photos and more). Students are asked a vital question: What piece of local community/culture has most impacted your life in such a way that you will always carry it with you, regardless of your geographic location?
Entries to this years’ edition may be submitted from February 28th to March 28th and, after the voting period, the winners will be announced on May 23rd. To learn more about this Scholarship visit www.facebook.com/expatyouth.
As always, we value you as a customer. If you have any questions about the scholarship or your policy, please call us at 1.800.872.0067 or 1.202.872.0060 or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org. Thank you and have a great day.

The AFSA scholarships (most of which also require a creative submission) are due on the 15th of March.
The AAFSW has also announced a new scholarship for “Twice Exceptional Students.” This is an underserved category for scholarships, so I encourage you to apply if you qualify. More info at: https://www.aafsw.org/aafsw-2018-merit-scholarships/
