According to the Institute of International Education (IIE), study abroad in less traditional destinations like Latin America is on the rise! And, the good news is that there is now a scholarship to make your study abroad experience in Latin America even more affordable. That’s the LIVFund Scholarship, of course!

At LIVFund, we give out awards in the amount of US$500 twice per month to students, interns and volunteers who are thrilled about the prospect of traveling to this amazing place. While that might not sound like a lot of cash, you have to remember that romping around the Switzerland of Central America (Costa Rica) or sipping on coffee in the Paris of South America (Buenos Aires, Argentina) doesn’t break the bank like the European counterparts do. In fact, in many places in Latin America, you can cover an entire month of living expenses with US$500.

Do you know what’s even better? LIVFund gives the money directly to you to use towards the program of your choice. That’s right! We are a completely independent organization. We want you to do what you want to do in Latin America. Just tell us about it, and you could jet off with an extra US$500 in your pocket!

You can start the online application right now:

Oh yeah! And, anyone who is spending at least 1 week abroad is eligible to apply for the scholarship. There is no application deadline either! How about that?
