Gap Year Grants

Welcome to the Go Overseas Gap Year Grant Application Page!

These gap year grants are offered through Travel Access Project. Travel Access Project is working to make gap years accessible to more travelers, and Go Overseas is proud to partner with Travel Access Project to give away two grants to our community.

If you're planning a gap year, apply for a gap year grant to help cover the costs of your experiences abroad. These grants are intended for travelers of all ages who are planning a gap year, or travelers who have started their gap year since July 1, 2017.

Who is Eligible for the Gap Year Grants?

Any traveler planning a meaningful gap year in 2017-2018 is eligible to apply. There is no income or age restriction for these grants.

How Will the Winners be Chosen?

Winners will be chosen based on a variety of factors, including:

  • Comprehensiveness of your gap year plan: where will you be going? when? what are the details?
  • Demonstrated understanding of the power of gap years: can you explain why a gap year is worth taking?
  • Passion and enthusiasm for the receiving the grant: can you explain 'why you?'
  • Creativity of your photo submission: does your photo accurately show why your gap year is meaningful?
