International Scholarships 

Students applying for international scholarships must be completing their junior year of high school, and possess, or be eligible for, a U.S. passport. Because the mission of the NCWA is "to educate, inspire and engage our community in international affairs and critical global issues" the focus will be on the international programs that best support that mission.

If international travel is restricted, virtual programs may be offered by the programs and our winners may elect to participate in those programs. All updated information regarding the availability of international programs for each year will be posted on this website and announced late in the calendar year. The deadline for application is usually in December.

Use the following application to apply for any of the international scholarships. After reviewing the written applications, the scholarship committee of the NCWA School Outreach Committee will narrow the candidates to those considered best qualified. Those individuals will be interviewed by the committee, and the scholarship winners will be selected from that group.

The scholarships offered by the Naples Council on World Affairs will cover program costs and international travel.  Participants will be responsible, at a minimum, for spending money abroad and the cost of roundtrip domestic airfare to the city of overseas departure. Additional financial aid may be available. 

If you have questions about the scholarships or the selection process after consulting the program websites, please contact the Program Chair, Judy Baker, at or the NCWA School Outreach Committee Chair, Mark Walchak at
