International Experiences – Grants and Funding 

Below are details of grants available for individuals (young people and adult volunteers) undertaking international experiences. This is by no means an exhaustive list, but may provide you with a starting point in your applications for funding.  

We strongly recommend that any applications for funding from these organisations is done alongside speaking to your Group and District about the financial possibilities they may have. Remember to speak to the volunteers leading your international experience; they will have insight and expertise into other potential sources of funding.
