Tomorrow, I've got an email to my inbox from Tara Parsons, Global Programs Manager of World Nomad. She gave me an information about World Nomads Scholarship 2010. And now, I will share it to you. This is the official email from her:
I have an exciting Travel Writing Scholarship opportunity to share with you all!
WorldNomads.com in conjunction with Rough Guides, Intrepid Travel and Hotels.com is offering the chance to go to Tokyo, Japan with Rough Guides Travel Writer, Simon Richmond.
The assignment will be to research, review and update essential travel info for the Tokyo section of ‘The Rough Guide to Japan’, including accommodation, bars & restaurants, entertainment, shopping, tours, activities and transport, as well as searching out those local secrets that travelers want to read about.
Your work will feature in the new edition of ‘The Rough Guide to Japan’ placing your foot firmly in the door of the elusive travel writing industry!
The winner of the scholarship will be flown to Tokyo, Japan from their country of residence where they will join Simon Richmond from Rough Guides for a 7 day assignment.
They will gain invaluable mentoring and hands-on experience through Simon's many years of Travel Writing.
After the assignment, the scholarship winner will also enjoy a 4 day “Flavours of Japan” tour with Intrepid Travel.
