David C. Pollock Scholarship

The David C. Pollock Scholarship Fund pays tribute to international educator, minister, sociologist, and co-author of Third Culture Kids: Growing up Among Worlds, David C. Pollock, whose tireless support, vision and dedication to families in global transition impacted countless people in every corner of the globe. Building on Pollock’s legacy, FIGT aims to attract, involve and educate emerging, global-minded, intercultural leaders.

The David C. Pollock Scholarship provides highly motivated individuals working or studying in the intercultural field the opportunity to attend the FIGT conference.

Our guiding question in 2015 has been, "Who is missing at the FIGT table?"  We are looking for a diverse field of applicants from each of our traditional sectors, (corporate, diplomatic, academic, military, mission, arts and entrepreneurial) plus voices not well represented, such as those involved in immigration and refugee work, an increase in male voices, and participants from all parts of the globe.

Excellent Scholarship applicant profiles include:

  • researchers in the field of global mobility
  • entrepreneurs in fields contributing towards the needs of globally mobile families and individuals
  • service providers/practitioners to global nomads
  • writers and thinkers with cross-cultural perspectives contributing to the expat community understanding and practice
  • artists and creatives who speak from and to a cross-cultural and mobile mindset

Pollock Scholarship applicants:

  • must be first time conference attendees
  • must apply before December 15th
  • must commit to the full conference

Pollock Scholarship recipients will benefit through:

  • free conference registration
  • a partial stipend to defray travel costs
  • opportunity to contribute to families in transition and those who serve them
  • contacts, networks, ideas, resources, and friendships garnered at FIGT Conference

The Pollock Scholarship Application has now closed for the 2015 Conference.Look for the next opportunity in the fall of 2015. Questions? Contact mgelwicks@figt.org.
