Diversity Abroad & StudentUniverse Scholarship Contest: $500 + Round Trip Airfare
Diversity Abroad is excited to announce they have partnered with StudentUniverse for the #PictureMeAbroad Contest to offer a $500 scholarship and round-trip international airfare for students studying abroad in the Summer 2018, Fall 2018 and Spring 2019 semesters.
The #PictureMeAbroad contest seeks to showcase the changing face of study abroad through the experiences of the DiversityAbroad.com student community. One challenge to increasing the participation of underrepresented and diverse students in Study Abroad programming is that marketing initiatives have historically bypassed these populations leaving many students to ask the question “are these programs really for me?” To combat this trend, the #PictureMeAbroad Contest seeks to highlight students from diverse and non-traditional backgrounds by asking them to submit short videos highlighting their background and why they would like to study abroad.
Ethnic/racial minority, high financial need and first generation college students are strongly encouraged to apply.
There are two prizes available: one grand prize winner will receive a $500 Diversity Abroad Scholarship + round-trip international airfare provided by StudentUniverse. Runner up will receive a Diversity Abroad and StudentUniverse Swag Bag + a Bluetooth Smartphone Travel Kit.
To learn how to enter and for more information, students should visit: https://www.diversityabroad.com/contest
The deadline to apply is February 28, 2018 at 11:59 pm PST. Winners will be selected and announced two weeks after the end of the contest.
