At FlipKey, we value the importance of travel and cultural immersion as a way to learn about the world firsthand. To encourage this, we are awarding one student a $1,000 scholarship to put towards studying abroad. From tuition costs to plane tickets and spontaneous excursions in between, the scholarship money can be used to cover any of the expenses associated with studying and traveling abroad. The deadline to apply is August 15, 2017.*
Eligible students should submit a 1,000 word essay to firstname.lastname@example.org describing why travel is important to him or her. Essays will be judged based on the following criteria: content, style and creativity. One essay per entrant only. Please include your name, college or university at which you are enrolled full time, mailing and email address, and documentation of current or upcoming enrollment in a study abroad program.
Full-time students over the age of 18 enrolled in a current or upcoming study abroad program are eligible.
The winner will be featured on FlipKey’s blog. We will post his or her name, photo, school they are attending, along with the winning essay.
