We are proud to be able to introduce our student bursary scheme, a process which will enable university undergraduates and college students to access financial support, and therefore helping to reduce some of that monetary barrier preventing your participation in meaningful travel overseas. We don’t want your monies to be the barrier keeping you from making a difference.  Our bursary funding has been assigned for usage towards our program in Aitutaki, Cook Islands during the summer of 2019 for programmes 3 weeks or more in length.
