What are the WorldNomads.com Travel Scholarships?

World Nomads is passionate about travel.

In late 2006, we were sitting around the office, telling stories about the jobs we've had and who have been the most inspiring people to work with. Without a doubt, everyone remembered that early mentor, that person who took the time to help you build skills in an area you were passionate about.

Someone who serves as an inspiration, a person that's taken their passion and made it a career.

We decided that we wanted to provide this learning experience for our World Nomads. We created a Travel Scholarship program to give passionate individuals the opportunity to further their skills through professional mentorship, in the fields of either travel writing, travel photography or video documentary film-making.

We know there is no better way than to learn on the job and no more valuable experience when it comes to learning than having a professional in that field guide you.

We're absolutely passionate about not only keeping our World Nomads travelling safely, but also about providing opportunities to get the most out of their travel experience. For some, that is a desire to combine their love of travel and a chosen career and we want the Travel Scholarships program to be a stepping stone to achieve that.

As a chosen scholarship recipient, you could be filming in India, photographing in Madagascar or writing a story from a mountain in Nepal, with some of the finest, most respected, travel professionals.

We'll continue to partner with the best travel companies such as National Geographic Channel, G Adventures, Rough Guides to provide amazing travel experiences and high quality mentors to help you learn and share your experiences with the world.

We like to keep World Nomads up to date with the latest scholarships news, so please sign up to the SCHOLARSHIP MAILING LIST
