Our main partner and sponsor in providing scholarships is Vacational Studies represented by its Managing Director and the JWA-founding member Ian Mucklejohn.
He offers two scholarships at no charge each year and the members of JWA are invited to propose worthwhile students who could not afford the course fees and the stay at Vacational Studies on their own. The criterion worthwhile means the student should be eager to learn English as a globally understood language, is open-minded and interested in socialising and international friendship, likes sports activities, plays an instrument or cultivates other hobbies reflecting his public spirited personality.
All this should be proved by the “JWA-Tutor” and a letter of recommendation from a teacher or any other reliable person. Application for a scholarship should be done one year (latest in autumn) in advance through our Application Form for Scholarship. Required documents that should be attached to the application form are:
- Motivation letter by scholarship recipient
- One or more recommendation letters from a non-relative
- Latest school report
Once accepted as a JWA scholarship recipient, JWA will care for the costs of travelling and pocket money.
Guidelines for applications for 2019 are as follows:
- All applications for 2019 are to be sent to the Secretary before 1 August 2018.
- Applicants will be interviewed by Skype during August and September 2018.
- Scholarships will be decided at the General Meeting in Autumn 2018.
Aside from this first, original project JWA supports – following its goal of promoting International Communication and Understanding – other projects. The decisions on such projects are taken during the “Meetings“.
