2016 Teach & Volunteer Abroad Scholarship

Meet the finalists of the 2016 Teach & Volunteer Abroad Scholarship

Voting for the 2016 IVHQ Teach & Volunteer Abroad Scholarship has now closed. Congratulations to each of our 12 finalists, including Taylor Franks who has been awarded the scholarship.

The IVHQ Teach & Volunteer Abroad Scholarship included a sponsored IVHQ volunteer program plus our internationally-recognized 100-hour online TEFL course for the winner to take before departing for the program. The 2016 scholarship also included a $1500 travel voucher from STA Travel, as well as a comprehensive volunteer travel insurance package from World Nomads.

Our scholarship recipient will be equipped with a TEFL certification from CCELT Online before departing to volunteer and teach English abroad with IVHQ. Outside of the classroom, our scholarship recipient will be blogging (or vlogging) for IVHQ, sharing the volunteering experience and and how the skills developed from the TEFL course can be applied to teach English abroad effectively.
