The Omprakash Volunteer Abroad Grant supports travel and living expenses for qualified, energetic, and entrepreneurial individuals who want to volunteer abroad within its international network of grassroots health, education, and environmental “Partner” organizations hosting social projects in more than 30 countries ranging from Ecuador to Kenya to India and beyond. While the majority of volunteers are required to cover their own travel and living expenses, the competitive grant program enables Omprakash to enlist inspired individuals who are poised to contribute to its mission but would be unable to pay their own way.

The program has three basic aims:
» To provide talented young people with educational and empowering experiences of global citizenship
» To provide its Partners with needed support
» To expand the scope and depth of our impact by recruiting volunteers who exhibit the intention and capacity to make a long-term contribution to its international network

The Volunteer Abroad Grant program is open to all, regardless of age or nationality. Omprakash reviews four cycles of grant applications each year. In addition to grant-supported travel, Omprakash offers volunteer opportunities with no administrative fees for those who can support their own participation.
