Theme for 2018 Entry: How Local Communities Impact You as an Expat
Washington, DC, March 01, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Clements Worldwide, a leading provider of international insurance since 1947, commenced its 10th anniversary edition of the Expat Youth Scholarship (EYS) today, which awards a combined scholarship prize of USD 10,000 to six expatriate students from ages 13 to 21 years old. This program, which has awarded scholarships to the youth expat community since 2009, will reach USD 100,000 awarded to young scholars to complete their educational goals this year.
“The EYS scholarship is another testament to Clements’ ongoing commitment to the international expatriate community and cultural diplomacy as a way to encourage global peace and understanding,” said Dan Tuman, President of Clements Worldwide. “Reading the entries always provides me with hope for the future and that is a gift.”
This year’s theme is “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?” which entrants will answer using any visual method chosen by the participant. All entries will be displayed at the scholarship Facebook page and a public voting will be held to choose the inspiring finalists from each of our two age-range categories – 13-16 years old and 17-21 years old.
“One of our past winners wants to major in Global Health having witnessed the devastation preventable diseases have caused in countries where her family was posted,” shared Tuman. “We are proud to support this young woman in achieving this life-saving goal.”
Clements Worldwide has been serving the growing and evolving expatriate community with personal and business insurance for 70 years. Students entering the contest have parents who work in government, business, education, and humanitarian aid work, providing them a unique perspective and opportunity for community engagement.
The deadline for entries is March 28 (11:59 p.m. U.S. EST), after which a public vote will take place to select the finalists. There will be six winners (first-, second-, and third- place winners in each age category), which will be announced on May 23.
