As students who wish to study abroad are often discouraged by the cost, this contest gives them an opportunity to get the funds they need and encourages them to think in-depth about their reasons for pursuing international education.

Launched by, the Travel Video Contest is open to young people from 18 years old, from around the world, already enrolled or planning to enroll in college or university outside their home country. 
All they have to do is make a short video of maximum four minutes, explaining their reasons to travel or study abroad. If entrants are already studying abroad, they could make a video about a trip they would like to take.
