Educators & Students Scholarship

Apply Now

This year’s interactive and ideas-driven event promises to engage and inspire world leaders, experts, and innovators across sectors. The Conference will empower participants, facilitate meaningful collaborations and build coalitions of thinkers, doers, and funders to address the following topics/sessions just to name a few:

  • Putting Global Competence & Intercultural Understanding into Practice: Lessons for K-12 Educators (by Duke University, USA)
  • Resilience and Mental Wellness in Under-Represented International Students (by a Hong Kong-based Clinical Psychologist)
  • What is a global citizen? How to become one? From reality to policy, the European example (by CONCORD and the LifeLongLearning Platform) 

Teachers and students play a critical role in these discussions, as they are the ones who will tackle the greatest global challenges and the ones most directly affected by our education systems, policies, and practices. We invite teachers and students to take part in the AFS Global Conference, and thus improve their global competence, network with influencers and exchange best practices with us in Montreal. 


Who can apply?

  • Current full-time students;
  • Primary and secondary school (K–12) teachers and administrators;
  • College/university educators working in global education and related fields.
  • Already registered participants can also apply, if they are awarded a scholarship they will be reimbursed accordingly.
  • Presenters of currently accepted proposals can only apply for these scholarships if they also fulfill the above-mentioned criteria.

All candidates must submit:

  • A completed application form (see here)
  • A motivation letter (as a part of the application form) demonstrating why you wish to participate in the event, your current project, a strong commitment to global competence education, and concrete plans to multiply knowledge gained at the Conference
  • Recommendation/official endorsement letter from one of the following
    • an AFS or Sentio Network Organization
    • an AFS Global Conference Content Partner
    • your school or other national/state education authority (e.g. Ministry or Department of Education, Higher Education Authority, etc.)

What does the scholarship provide?

  • Full coverage of the AFS Global Conference registration fees; 
  • Up to 3 night-stay in double room accommodation in the Conference hotel from 9 to 12 October; 
  • Partial or full reimbursement of international round-trip travel costs to Montreal up to established limits based on the origin of travel.

Reimbursement will be done after the conference within 10 business days of submitting the original receipt.
