Families in Global Transition 2020 Conference
Embracing and Bridging Differences
Scholarship Submission Deadline September 15, 2019
Date and Location
FIGT is pleased to announce our 2020 Annual Conference #FIGT2020 will be held at the International School Bangkok (ISB) in Bangkok, Thailand on March 13-15, 2020.
Families in Global Transition is a welcoming forum for globally mobile individuals, families, and those working with them. We promote cross-sector connections for sharing research and developing best practices that support the growth, success and well-being of people crossing cultures around the world.
The David C Pollock Scholarship Fund pays tribute to the foundational international educator, minister, sociologist, and co-author of Third Culture Kids: Growing up Among Worlds, David C Pollock. David’s 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 souls. It is a place where research comes to life, and lived experiences are explained and valued.
The David C Pollock Scholarship therefore provides highly motivated individuals working or studying in the intercultural and transnational mobility fields the opportunity to attend the FIGT conference. In selection our guiding question is, "Who is missing at the FIGT table?" We are looking for a diverse field of applicants across our traditional sectors, (corporate, diplomatic, research, 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 underrepresented parts of the globe.
