The Christianson Grant

While many scholarships exist to support traditional study abroad participants, funding for those who wish to volunteer or gain work experience in another country is harder to come by. Fortunately, there's the Christianson Grant, which awards $2,500 - $10,000 to U.S. citizens and permanent residents, ages 18-28, who have arranged their own work, internship, or volunteer abroad program. Applications are accepted three times each year - the next deadline is October 15th! Apply for the grant if you have already been accepted on an exchange program, or visit our Going Abroad pages to search for possible programs.
