Take a break that counts! International Volunteer HQ’s Alternative Break Scholarship is open to anyone looking to break away from the standard-issue Spring, Summer or Winter Break and join forces with other travelers who are passionate about creating positive change through meaningful international experiences.

An Alternative Break offers both individuals and groups the opportunity to support communities abroad as volunteers on specific social issues such as education, environmental, health and community projects. Not only do alternative break volunteers get to give back to a community that values their support, they can still gain all the experiences of a “traditional break” abroad; meeting new people, immersion in a new culture, and the opportunity to explore!

If applicants are wanting to take an alternative break, but are not sure if they can afford it. Or, they are hoping to secure an internship but they need to earn money instead. Then the Alternative Break Scholarship offers applicants the chance to have a meaningful experience abroad, without having to pay for it! They’ll have their Registration and Program Fees paid for plus flights up to the value of $1000, which could save their more than $3,000!

With the Alternative Break Scholarship applicants can choose from two alternative break options: volunteering abroad or taking an internship. Both allow them to make their vacation an extension of their education, help them develop their cross-cultural understanding and give them invaluable life experience.


  • 2-week volunteer or intern abroad program with International Volunteer HQ or Intern Abroad HQ in the destination of the recipients choice
  • Flight voucher (to the value of US$1000) from IVHQ Flights
  • Travel insurance up to the value of US$250 for the 2-week duration of the IVHQ Program
  • The ‘Certificate in International Volunteering’ online course from Global Travel Academy
  • All-inclusive programs provide volunteers and interns with comprehensive pre-departure support services and training, as well as in-country program orientation, accommodation, meals and 24/7 support.


The scholarship is open to anyone of any nationality who is over the age of 18.
