As an NGO working toward the implementation of the Sustainable Development Goals, Peace Boat US recognizes that achieving  the goals will require an unprecedented mobilization of the energy and skills of young people, who play a key role in promoting and advancing the SDGs through entrepreneurship, volunteering, research, education and other endeavors.

Towards this aim, Peace Boat US is offering two full “Youth in Action for the SDGs” scholarships for a study program  this summer called “Peace Education and the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) in Latin America.”  This special program will take place onboard the Peace Boat ship as it visits Panama, Nicaragua, and El Salvador from June 20 – July 3, 2017. The scholarship covers airfare from NYC-Panama, and El Salvador-NYC (or equivalent price); accommodation, meals, and travel onboard Peace Boat and in ports of call for the duration of the program; and travel insurance.

The scholarships are open to candidates between the ages of 16-30, and will be awarded to one female and one male representative. Experience volunteering or working on SDG-related initiatives, and a commitment to continuing SDG-related work in the future will be one of our main considerations in awarding the scholarship. Applications must be submitted by 5:00 pm / 17:00 (Eastern Standard Time) on April 25, 2017.  

For more information about the program and a full list of eligibility requirements as well as details on how to apply, please visit the program website.
