Video Scholarship Competition
2016-2017 Study Abroad
Video Scholarship Competition
The Office of International Programs is pleased to announce that it will, again, offer the Study Abroad Video Scholarship; a scholarship for those North Central College students who studied abroad during the 2016-2017 academic year. This scholarship serves two main purposes: it gives you a chance to create a unique kind of reflection on your study abroad experience, and it provides other students with helpful information about your program.
We are asking that your application take the form of a five-minute video that could be used to promote study abroad at North Central College. You can decide what photos, text, and music you’d like to use; all we ask is that you select those that best represent the academic, cultural, and personal aspects of your experience that were most memorable and meaningful. No inappropriate subject matter (e.g., sex, alcohol, violence) should be included.
Note: At least 50% of your video must be video foootage, while the other 50% can be photos. Videos comprised only of photos or photo slideshows will not meet the requirements for the competition.
