15 Ways to Position Your Child for College Scholarships--#2
- Monday, January 14, 2002
6. Pursue cross-cultural experiences.
You dont really need to leave the United States to make this happen, just pursue experiences that expose your children to internationals living in this country; i.e., invite a foreign student home for Christmas break, host an exchange student, open your home to furloughed missionaries, etc. Spend the summer volunteering for ministry serving a cross-cultural group of people in your area.
As you can see from each of these examples, scholarship committees are looking for individuals who are open to new experiences and able to demonstrate their intellectual growth through writing thoughtfully about them. My experience has been that Christian home schoolers typically incorporate these types of experiences into their lives because of our high commitment to furthering the Gospel and serving others. We often do not realize they also make our children highly valued by selection committees as well.
