Writing Contest with Study Abroad Scout

Scholarship Writing Contest for Spring 2015


Study Abroad Scout ( ), in partnership with Sant' Anna Institute, is excited to announce a new scholarship writing contests.

The winning entry will receive:

a $3500 scholarship to attend Sant' Anna Institute in the Spring of 2015 and will be published on Abroad Scout.

This contest is open to all college students from all majors with a 2.5 cumulative GPA or higher.

Sant' Anna Institute, with transfer of credits by SUNY, offers courses in Italian studies, humanities, architecture, business, social and natural sciences. Additionally, they offer internships and community service for academic credit.



Write a compelling 500 to 700 word article for college students who are interested in Italy. Include two to three photos which either belong to you or with which you have permission to use.


Something about Italy; you decide. It could be on your field of study, current politics, slow food, art and history, geography, people, culture, religion, mysticism, etc. It's completely up to you, but remember you're writing for your peers and it must be tied directly to Italy. No encyclopedia entries. It should be enjoyable to read. We welcome you to inject personal thoughts, feelings, and experiences.


Entries will be evaluated on original voice, fresh point of view, strong diction and writing, potential peer impact, value to your college student peers, creativity, and of course spelling and grammar.


Send entries to The article should be in a Word document. Attach photos separately but indicate in your article where you would like them to be placed. Include a short bio with your name, university, grade level, and area(s) of study.


Deadline : September 15, 2014.
