InterExchange Foundation Grants- work abroad grants. Deadline 10/15/07(this year’s cycle) and 3/15/08(next year’s cycle)


The InterExchange Foundation Grant Program was established in 2006 to
provide grants to young Americans who wish to help further cultural
awareness through meaningful work abroad experiences.

While international education is currently dominated by academic
programs with thousands of students studying abroad annually, the
number of participants on work, internship and volunteer abroad
programs remains comparatively low.

By providing financial assistance to eligible recipients, the
InterExchange Foundation aims to do its part in encouraging young
Americans to pursue work and life experiential programs abroad.

Grant awards are intended to defray the costs of transportation, participation fees, travel insurance, housing, and meals related to a work, internship, or volunteer abroad program. Recipients must submit a written report to InterExchange upon completion of their program, describing how the grant allowed them to gain international understanding through working abroad.
