If you’re planning on studying abroad this year, we want you to be aware of some of the great scholarship opportunities that are out there! We recently connected with Brian Carlsen, of Connect-123, which is an organization started in Cape Town, and offers internship, volunteer, and study abroad options in 5 different international locations (Buenos Aires, Shanghai, Cape Town, Barcelona, and Dublin). Brian was excited to inform us about three incredible scholarship opportunities on their website, and we wanted to share them with you!
Connect-123 is currently running an international scholarship to any of their locations abroad. The grand prize scholarship includes airfare, housing and program fees to any of their locations (valued at $4,000)!! There are also two secondary scholarships, which include a program fee waiver to any of their programs and locations (valued at $1,000-2,000).
We wanted to learn more about Connect-123, so we asked Brian to share some information on the company, scholarship, and type of students they bring on their programs. Below is the interview we had via email with Brian.
Why are you particularly excited about this scholarship?
We love the idea that this scholarship competition removes any barriers to curious open-minded people wishing to have fantastic international experiences! We can’t wait to hear what gets young people around the world excited about an international experience like this, and how they think it will impact their lives.
We thank Brian for taking the time to let us know about Connect-123 and the wonderful scholarship opportunities they are offering!
