IVHQ Scholarships

Apply for a Wildlife & Conservation Volunteer Abroad Scholarship

At International Volunteer HQ, we’re proud to enable volunteers with the opportunity to support the protection and conservation of our natural environment and species in over 20 destinations around the world.

Applications for the IVHQ Wildlife & Conservation Volunteer Abroad Scholarship have now closed. We’re now selecting a group of finalists who will be in the running to become the scholarship recipient. Public voting begins on September 30 at 7pm (PST).

What does the scholarship include?

  • 2-week wildlife or conservation volunteer project with IVHQ in the destination of the recipients choice
  • Flight voucher (to the value of US$1000) from IVHQ Flights
  • Travel insurance up to the value of US$250 for the 2-week duration of the IVHQ Program
  • The ‘Certificate in International Volunteering’ online course from Global Travel Academy

Our all-inclusive volunteer programs provide volunteers with comprehensive pre-departure support services and training, as well as in-country program orientations and safety briefings, accommodation, meals and 24/7 in-country support. If you are the successful scholarship recipient, you will also be blogging (or vlogging) for IVHQ and sharing your volunteering experience.
