Travel writing scholarship 2017

World Nomads is inviting students and nonprofessional writers from any nationality (but with exceptional written English skills) to submit applications for its travel writing scholarship.

Entrants will have to write a 2500 character story about a travel experience around one of the following themes:
– Making a local connection
– Out of my comfort zone
– A place I’ll never forget.

Three aspiring writers will win a 10-day travel-writing trip in the Balkans (Croatia, Macedonia, Albania, Montenegro, Serbia, Bosnia & Herzegovina and Kosovo).
They will also attend a travel-writing course under the mentorship of New York Times and Outside magazine contributor Tim Neville. The scholarships will cover airfare, accommodation and travel insurance.

Deadline to apply: 21 March 2017.
