Funding Your Internship

Finding financial support for your long-term stay abroad can be, politely speaking, quite challenging sometimes. However, money should never be the reason to skip the invaluable experience of working and learning in the Amazon rainforest. Here you can find possible ways to fund your internship overseas!



Many universities are offering aid or grants for internships. Speak with you study counselor about different possibilities for funding your trip!



Sometimes there are governmental aids for studying / doing an internship abroad. Check the website of Ministry of Education of your home country AND of your destination country.
