Have you heard about LIVFund?
LIVFund is a brand new non-profit organization that supports learn, intern and volunteer initiatives in Latin America through the LIVFund Scholarship.
This unique funding opportunity allows you to put the money you are awarded towards the abroad program of your choice. You can even design your own program if you’d like as LIVFund also supports people who prefer to experience Latin America “indie” style.
Basically, if you are over the age of 18 and have plans to learn, intern or volunteer abroad in one of the following countries for at least one  week, you are eligible to apply. Gap year students, that means you too!
Argentina, Belize, Bolivia, Brazil, Chile, Colombia, Costa Rica, Cuba, Dominican Republic, Ecuador, El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras, Mexico, Nicaragua, Panama, Paraguay, Peru, Puerto Rico, Uruguay, Venezuela.
LIVFund will award two  US$500 scholarships per month to selected recipients. While not an astounding amount of cash, US$500 can go quite a long ways in Central and South America!
