Finding funds to join a program abroad doesn’t have to be challenging. There are many options available, such as checking to see if we have any scholarships available or raising funds via our fundraising page. 

Alternatively, if you’re a citizen of the United Kingdom, you might qualify for a bursary to help fund your program. You can learn more by visiting or contacting one of the colleges or universities mentioned below.

Testimonial

Hi I’m Meg, I’m 19 and currently taking a gap year, using it to travel as much as possible. I have been on the GVI under 18s trips to Cape Town for two weeks and also the Community Development Internship in India for 3 months – both were amazing!

In order to fund both of these trips I got in contact with a few local organisations who gave me a grant to help pay for GVI. I just sent an email to our local round table and rotary club then all I had to do was fill out a small application form. The village I live in also has a foundation that provides grants for young people doing trips similar to GVI and they sent me another application form.

After the trips I just sent them an email to tell them how I had got on. I would definitely recommend getting in touch with local round tables or rotary clubs to see if they offer grants.

For my next GVI trip I am really keen to visit Ghana on their Child Development Project. After university I would really like to look further into a career in the Community Development industry.
