The Scholarships are awarded annually to candidates who show great promise in the arts and literature, with nine scholarship categories available, offered over alternate years: Acting, Architecture, Ballet, Instrumental Music, Painting, Poetry, Prose, Sculpture and Singing. Scholarship funds can be used to assist with study programs, professional training courses and/or mentor programs.
The World Nomads Travel Writing Scholarship gives three aspiring writers the opportunity to attend a travel writing workshop with a professional and widely-published travel writer (a different tutor each year). After completing the workshop, they will then put their writing skills to the test on a 10-day all-expenses-paid trip where they will document their adventures. This is a global opportunity. 2019 dates are to be confirmed.
