IVHQ Scholarships

IVHQ's Travel Blogger Scholarship 2016

At IVHQ, we believe that travelers should be empowered to make meaningful contributions to the communities that they are visiting, wherever in the world they choose to travel. And we're proud to make this happen in over 35 countries around the world.

IVHQ's Travel Blogger Scholarship gives one lucky recipient the chance to blog their way to winning the opportunity to volunteer abroad and share insights, tips and stories which in turn will provide a valuable resource for future volunteer travelers.

The Travel Blogger Scholarship includes a sponsored 2-week IVHQ volunteer program, plus a $1500 travel voucher from the team at StudentUniverse. The scholarship recipient will also be equipped with an Advanced Travel Writing certification from Matador U Travel Media School before departing to volunteer in the destination of their choice. In their spare time, they'll be blogging for IVHQ, sharing their volunteering experience and valuable insights for IVHQers planning to volunteer abroad.
