For the 13th consecutive year, Allianz Global Assistance‘s ScholarTrips scholarship contest is on. The rules are nearly the same as they were in last year’s contest—and the winnings are better. In 2017, students over the age of 14 are invited to enter to win one of six $2,500 study abroad scholarships, ten second-place $1,000 scholarships or 25 third-place $500 scholarships. Here’s what you—or your child, nephew/friend, etc.—need to know:
How to enter:
Students must submit a 500-word essay or a 60-to-90-second video (WMV, MOV or MP4) responding to the following prompt: Who your ideal travel companion is (can be living or dead), where you would go, and why.
Essays and videos can be submitted on this page.
The contest will run from October 6 through November 6, 2017. Winners will be announced—and winning entries will be posted—on or around December 20.
…on the contest page. And in the video below:
“We believe in supporting student programs that promote travel, cultural understanding and personal growth,” said Joe Mason, Chief Marketing Officer of the Americas Region at Allianz Worldwide Partners. “ScholarTrips can help students enrich their lives through these experiences and make travel dreams a reality.”
One final note: To spread the word of this year’s contest, Allianz is once again empowering travel agents with the tools to promote it. Those tools—plus more info—are here.
