Scholarships are similar in nature to student loans, but with one key difference – a scholarship does not need to be repaid. Scholarships can help pave the way to better education or create opportunities for students to enjoy new experiences they otherwise would not be able to. At NEST Adventure we are dedicated to helping students achieve their goals in their studies related to travel and tourism, or to gain the skills needed to help make the world a better place for future generations If you are currently a student and have a keen sense of adventure, we are offering a scholarship to help broaden your horizons. Students with an interest in wilderness travel, who aspire to develop their mountaineering skills, or who just want to make the world a better place through the study of global warming and ice melting are the kinds of students for which we are looking. You should also consider our scholarship if you are studying any of the following subjects:
- Environmental studies
- Rural village development
- Hospitality management
- Adventure tourism
To be eligible, all you need to do is be currently enrolled or accepted into a college ready for the next semester. Australian students must have a distinction level grade, and students from the USA or Canada must have a GPA of 3.0 or higher. We do require proof of acceptance or enrolment before we can move forward with your application. To be in with a chance you will need to prepare the outline of a 2,000-word essay related to travel, tourism and hospitality, or issues currently faced by the environment such as global warming. Please note, the submission is an outline only, not the full article Each outline will go through an approval process, and if yours is successful, you will then receive detailed instructions about how to write and submit the final article. If your submission is the winner, a check will be issued to your college or university.
Scholarships are worth $1,000, will be sent directly to your college or university; but you need to get your application in quick, as the deadline for acquiring a place in next year’s offering is December 25th, 2019. contact us.
