When do you need to apply by?

Applications for the scholarship close at 7:00pm on 23 September 2018 (PST). A group of finalists will then be shortlisted for the Wildlife & Conservation Volunteer Abroad Scholarship, and voting will be open to the public to select our scholarship recipient.

What does the scholarship include?

  • 2-week wildlife or conservation volunteer project with IVHQ in the destination of your choice

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.
