With expat numbers approaching 1% of the global population, these young people have the opportunity to be the global ambassadors of tomorrow in government, businesses, and the arts,” said Sergio Sanchez, Senior Director of Marketing, Clements Worldwide.
Washington, DC (PRWEB) April 20, 2017
Clements Worldwide, leading provider of international insurance since 1947, opened its annual 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 has awarded scholarships to the youth expat community since 2009, with over USD 80,000 awarded to young scholars to complete their educational goals.
“With expat numbers approaching 1% of the global population, these young people have the opportunity to be the global ambassadors of tomorrow in government, business, and the arts,” said Sergio Sanchez, Senior Director of Marketing, Clements Worldwide. “Clements is proud to help these scholars pursue their dreams.”
This year’s theme is “How do you use your experience living abroad to make the world a better place,” which entrants will answer using a picture and a short essay. 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.
As a leading insurer of international schools with its flagship Scholars Health Insurance program, Clements Worldwide has added school contests as well this year to encourage outreach and participation. The international school with the most entries will also receive a prize.
Over the last eight years, the Scholarship has received inspiring entries from youth all around the world, typically students living with their parents or studying abroad. As the number of expats increases, students are growing up in unique, and often economically disadvantaged, locations. Their parents work for aid organizations, government entities, and multinational businesses, representing Clements’ broad customer base. These students possess a different viewpoint than children growing up in their home country.
The deadline for entries is May 25 (11:59 p.m. U.S. EST). There will be six winners (first, second, and third place winners in both age categories), which will be announced on July 13.
