Scholarship helps travelers and future expats discover exciting destinations, cultural hot spots, and hidden gems across the world using tips from locals.

​Using only for your research, choose an interesting theme and make a list of cities offering the top 5-10 best destinations for visitors related to that theme.

Here are some examples:

  • 5 Cities in America with Great Fishing
  • 8 Cities in France with Excellent Antiques
  • 10 Cities with the Most Beautiful Mountain Views

For each city, write a couple lines explaining why it’s a great pick for your chosen theme, using quotes from the inhabitants of the cities taken from its page.
