Clements International’s “Life in a Flying House” 2010 Expat Youth Scholarship

Clements International’s “Life in a Flying House” 2010 Expat Youth Scholarship will award $10,000 to students ages 12-18 of any nationality who have resided in a foreign country for at least two consecutive years. This year’s theme asks, “Where would you go in your flying house?” The “flying house” is inspired by the idea that students who spend their childhoods moving between different countries and cultures acquire unique life experiences.

The scholarship contest offers expat students a chance to use their experiences living in a foreign country to imagine where their journey might take them next.

Entries consist of an essay (500 – 750 words) and creative image or photograph that incorporates their own personalized flying house.
