OWHC Young Travelling Scholarship 2024

Four images of cities and their heritage with the text of the call.

The Organisation of World Heritage Cities (OWHC) with its Regional Secretariat for Northwest Europe and North America organises the fourth travel scholarship for young people. The winners of the scholarship programme have the opportunity to discover World Heritage Cities and experience why UNESCO World Heritage needs to be preserved.

This project is aimed at young people from ages 18 to 28 in order to make Europe’s and North America’s World Heritage a more tangible experience for the younger generation. Each traveller/team has to visit at least three different cities listed as World Heritage in at least two different countries, with at least two destinations being one of the member cities of the Regional Secretariat of Northwest Europe and North America. Otherwise, they are completely independent at planning their own trip.

The Travellers share their experience on this blog and keep everyone updated on social media (Instagram or Facebook) as they are discovering different World Heritage Cities. At the end of their trip, they design a creative output (photographs, videos etc.) of their travels. The project intends to share World Heritage from different perspectives. Applications are taken from all over the world in order to represent different views on several heritage sites.

The successful applicants are provided with a budget of up to 1,000 EUR.
