A Scholarship is a grant or payment made to support personal and professional development, awarded on the basis of achievement or dedicated commitment to a project or cause.  The funding is in place to promote and support the sustainable development of our program expedition in the Cook Islands.  Each successful applicant will receive a bursary of £500 towards volunteer their own fees.  The funding will be used to support your living and recreational costs in The Cook Islands over a two or four week program.
