If you could travel anywhere in the world, where would you go?

Tallwood has recently been offered $25,000 in scholarship money from CIEE, an incredible and world-renowned program that allows students to make their dreams come true abroad. The money will be put toward any Tallwood high school students graduating in 2019, 2020, or 2021 to partake in various unforgettable international adventures in over 30 different countries.

This past summer, I was able to fulfill my dream of visiting Morocco. Arabic and the Middle East have been long-time passions of mine, and Morocco in particular has always seemed to me like such an exquisite and magical place, from the unique and varied culture, to the breathtaking scenery, to the intricately-designed architecture and apparel. This is why I lept at the opportunity to apply for CIEE’s month-long language and culture program in Morocco, and why I was overjoyed to receive a full scholarship to attend.

From exploring caves and ancient cities, to taking spontaneous taxi rides to secluded beaches where we were offered camel rides, to bargaining with the local venders for the strangest food I’ve ever eaten, every day in Morocco brought new surprises and adventures that bought me a great deal of newfound confidence, creativity, and strength.

Whether you are interested in learning languages and exploring new cultures, participating in meaningful community service while getting to know people who live vastly different lives than you, or pursuing a hobby or interest such as filmmaking, world politics, or environmental sustainability, CIEE will surely have a program for you.

The scholarship application deadline is quickly approaching, and will close on December 1. Scholarships will be awarded to any eligible student based on their merit and financial need.
