Scholarships and Aid for Volunteer Work

Projects Abroad volunteers outside their project in Mexico.

Projects Abroad does not have the capacity to offer scholarships and financial aid to volunteers. This is because we do not receive any outside financial support ourselves. Instead, the program fees you pay help support meaningful projects around the world and provide you with everything you need to volunteer abroad.

We are happy to help with suggestions and ideas on fundraising for your trip. There are lots of ways to raise the necessary funds and we recommend trying as many of them as possible!

If you are looking at volunteering on a budget, we also have some options available for you.

External Scholarships

While Projects Abroad cannot provide financial aid directly, the following external scholarships may be available to be applied to Projects Abroad programs. Please note Projects Abroad has no affiliation with any of these scholarships and cannot help you apply for or secure any possible funding they may offer.
