EF’s Global Citizen Scholarship gives you the opportunity to bring your innovative ideas to life, both abroad and at home. Recipients will earn a free trip to Panama, where man-made marvels and natural phenomena intersect.

We’re challenging applicants to identify solutions that will improve the global water crisis, starting with their own communities. We want you to turn the tide!
