Whether you choose to participate in an intern or volunteer program abroad, deciding how to pay for the experience is an important step in the process. For some, program funding is the greatest challenge they face when preparing to go abroad. Financial assistance can come from sources such as financial aid, scholarships, and fundraising. Regardless of how you fund the program, we strongly believe that participating in an enriching experience abroad is one of the most important things you can do with your money. It will help build your resume, give you powerful learning experiences, and expand your global perspective. In today’s increasingly global economy, even a short-term experience immersed in another culture will prove to be invaluable both personally and professionally.
