Travel scholarship offers education and excitement
Posted Oct. 22, 2008

Have you ever wanted to float lazily on a houseboat around Vembanad Lake, or seen a real life elephant in the Aralam Wildlife Sanctuary? Well now is your chance to visit India and partaking in adventures, all while earning a scholarship.

World Nomads is partnering with Footprint Guide Books to offer a very unique and exciting scholarship opportunity.

Your assignment begins when you embark on a 10- day tour to Kerala, India with The Blue Yonder, offering a unique insight into the River Nila civilization.

On the scholarship adventure, participants will be guided and mentored by famous travel writer, David Scott, travel specialist of Australia and India. Afterwards, they will hit the road for 10 days, reviewing and writing for the Footprint India Handbook.

While touring the Nila River, participants will experience the rarest of interactions with folk artists, musicians, potters and ritualistic healers.

Upon completing the assignment, writing on the journey will be featured in the newest edition of the Footprint India Handbook. This accomplishment will surely launch anyone well on their way to the travel writing world and community.

World Nomads is passionate about travel, offering travel insurance and safety services for travelers. The group, established in 1999, has built four offices across the globe and is an ever-growing online network.

The scholarships offered are meant to attract individuals who share the same kind of love and respect for traveling and the desire to continue learning more while also contributing to the learning process.

World Nomads currently offers four different travel scholarships each year: writing, pod cast journalism, photography and film documentary.

The last day to submit applications for this exclusive scholarship is Jan. 9, 2009.

For a detailed scholarship and application, applicants can visit http://journals.worldnomads.com/scholarships/post/23609.aspx.

Kerala is one of the most densely populated states in India and was ranked No. 12 among the most populated states. Also one of the most popular tourist attractions in India, it was named one of the "10 paradises of the world" and "50 places of a lifetime," according to National Geographic Traveler magazine.

Adorning palaces, open beaches, animal sanctuaries and shopping and theater centers are the biggest attractions throughout Kerala, attracting a vast collection of tourists yearly.
