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.
