(Updated for 2017)
We probably don’t have to tell you the costs of volunteering and studying abroad add up quickly. Between plane tickets, travel insurance, and program fees, the financial costs of traveling abroad make planning your once-in-a-lifetime trip less fun and quite overwhelming.
That's why we've put together the most comprehensive resource for volunteer abroad and study abroad scholarships and grants, including our very own Volunteer Forever Travel Scholarship! Read below for 200great scholarship and grant opportunities to make your dream of volunteering or studying abroad come true.
200 Travel Scholarships and Grants to Volunteer, Teach, and Study Abroad
As you know by now, volunteering and studying abroad can be expensive. Organizations like International Volunteer HQ offer extremely affordable placements abroad for travelers, with programs starting from only $180 per week. However, you still will need to budget for airfare, travel insurance, and other travel-related expenses, which can become costly for those on a shoestring budget. The same applies to other affordably-priced programs through organizations such as Plan My Gap Year, Maximo Nivel (top-rated on Volunteer Forever), or Love Volunteers.
Volunteering with award-winningGlobal Vision International, which is one of the largest and most established volunteer organizations in the world (along with being one of the most highly rated on our site) with 2,000 volunteers per year, may cost $2,000 or more for the program fee.
That’s where Volunteer Forever comes in. As you plan your travels, try to combine crowdfuding through Volunteer Forever with one of the many scholarships and grants outlined below. Each one of these opportunities is open to travelers wanting to better themselves and help the communities that host them. Not only can you greatly offset your trip costs by combining these two options, but by highlighting your crowdfunding efforts in your scholarship application you’ll demonstrate to the scholarship committee that you’re committed to the cause—whether it’s to volunteer in an underserved community, or to further your studies in another country.
For example, one way you can demonstrate the impact and importance of your volunteer or study abroad placement is to travel with an organization that’s dedicated to helping you achieve your academic or career goals, such as Maximo Nivel. Right now, Maximo Nivel offers a wide variety of impactful and educational placements for students and travelers from all backgrounds - you can earn university credit through Maximo Nivel’s study abroad programs, gain insight into your future career through an impactful internship abroad, and even earn the President’s Volunteer Service Award by volunteering on one of Maximo Nivel’s many programs in Latin America.
Furthermore, keep in mind that many of scholarships we have listed below only have one or two winners per year. You'll definitely want to make sure you have back-up funding in case you're not one of the chosen few who receive an award. Fortunately, there are amazing, affordable organizations like International Volunteer HQ, with service opportunities all over the world that won’t break the bank. International Volunteer HQ is currently offering an all-expenses paidTeach and Volunteer Abroad Scholarship that will cover a sponsored two-week volunteer project in one of 35 locations, a $1,000 travel voucher from STA travel, a volunteer travel insurance package from World Nomads, and an internationally-recognized TEFL course from CCELT Online.
Here are more than 200 scholarships (including the Volunteer Forever Travel Schlolarship) for mission trips and grants to help you volunteer, teach, or study abroad—read on to find the best option for your travel goals.
If you're looking for tips for getting free airfare or finding no-cost volunteer projects, learn how you can volunteer abroad for free.
We've also identified several volunteer organizations that offer cheap volunteer projects such as Plan My Gap Year, which offers extremely affordable volunteer adventures starting from only $225 for a one-week trip - and with complete transparency on their program costs, you’ll know exactly where your payment is going when you sign up with PMGY. Other affordable organizations include International Volunteer HQ (which we previously mentioned), Agape Volunteers, which offers volunteer abroad experiences in Africa starting at $510 for two weeks, and Volunteering Solutions, which offers volunteer and intern abroad experiences in 20+ countries starting at $200 for one week.
Lastly, consider a paid teaching opportunity, such as the i-to-i Paid Teaching placement, in which participants are provided a monthly stipend and accomodations to Teach English as a Foreign Language (TEFL) in Thailand, China, and Vietnam.

The cost of flights is continuing to increase around the world, rising fuel costs and decrease in competition means that flights are only going to get more expensive. To help international students out, we have partnered with Student Universe to offer cheap, low cost international and domestic airfare options to students all over the world.
To start the process, please use the search tool on this page and it will look through their database of flight options to find the best solution, and hopefully the cheapest solution for you.
Am I Eligible to purchase a Student Ticket?
- To be eligible to purchase a ticket, you must be either a student or teaching faculty member who is currently registered in an (government) accredited college, community college, or university of 2-4 years. You do not need to be attending school full time, as long as you are currently enrolled and taking/teaching classes. Some of our Airfares do have age requirements. Make sure you qualify for the airfare you wish to purchase by reading the "Important Eligibility & Fare Rules," which are listed after you add an airfare to your shopping cart.
- If your college or university does not offer a school-issued email address, you may purchase through StudentUniverse.
- Please note that we will only ship to US/Canadian addresses, and that the majority of our fares originate from North America.
- Students and faculty currently enrolled/teaching in graduate programs are eligible.
- If you are a student who is receiving a degree from a university or college in the U.S. or Canada and are studying abroad, you can join StudentUniverse by creating an online account using the name of the U.S./Canadian school through which you are earning credit.
- Unfortunately, high school students and teachers, unless they are part of a group of 12 or more passengers, are not eligible to purchase from StudentUniverse.
