Bursary Fund

We have committed ourselves to providing bursaries for anyone experiencing financial strain, including individuals from low-income households, students, and recent graduates.

We believe our programs offer something unique that everyone–regardless of economic background or situation–should have access to. Our bursary program can cover 15%-30% of your program fee.

If this applies to you, simply apply for the program of your choice, then write us a brief letter explaining your financial situation. Make sure to highlight what other steps you have taken to help alleviate the burden (i.e. approaching your university for scholarships or bursaries). Please mail your letter to:

Financial Needs Bursary Fund
Operation Groundswell
77 Florence St., Suite 103
Toronto, ON
M6K 1P4

We will get back to you promptly after receiving your letter.

*All students are eligible for our bursary funds.

Approaching Your University for Additional Funding

Many institutions offer bursaries and allowances for volunteer travel programs. Check with your registrar what opportunities are available to you. If they require any information or official documentation, please feel free to get in touch with us. We’re here to help you get the resources you need!

My trip with Operation Groundswell was exactly the sort of adventure I was hoping it would be. The people that you meet and experiences that you have while abroad will undoubtedly be some of the most memorable of your life.
