West Virginia Lions seeking students to travel abroad

Each year the Lions Clubs of West Virginia provide the opportunity for several students to travel abroad. Briefly, a travel grant provides funds, for students in grades 10-12 or a recent graduate, toward a four to six week cultural exchange to Finland, Japan, Italy, Peru or Australia during the summer of 2018 with six travel grants of $1,200 being awarded. Application deadline is November 15.

Students may contact their high school guidance counselors for more information, an application and contest rules and procedure forms.

The Youth Exchange Scholarship Application and Rules forms are also currently available on West Virginia Lions website at www.wvlions.org/ youth.html.

Scholarship rules and procedures and scholarship entry form are available at the bottom of the page.
