The Omprakash Volunteer Grant supports travel and living expenses for qualified, energetic, and entrepreneurial individuals who want to volunteer abroad within our international network of grassroots health, education, and environmental “Partner” organizations. Omprakash levies no fees upon volunteers, but the majority of volunteers are still required to cover their own travel and living expenses. Our grant program enables us to harness the potential of inspired individuals who are poised to contribute to our mission but would struggle to afford these basic costs. Four deadlines a year, check the website for details. Check website for deadlines.
What is the grant award amount?
Grants generally range from $500.00 – $2,500.00 and may only be used for travel and living expenses, such as plane tickets and the cost for accommodation. Funds may not be used to purchase project supplies such as classroom teaching materials. Grants are distributed in one to three installments.
