Multiple organizations offer travel grants to individuals who meet certain requirements, such as students who wish to study abroad, people who wish to explore their religions, and even those who may just want to travel and are willing to record some interviews along the way. Travel grants vary in the time allotted for travel, the destination for travel and the reason.
Some travel grants are highly competitive post-college graduate grants such as the Fulbright grant program which is designed for students with the intention of teaching English abroad or studying abroad while attending university. These grants vary in the amount of money given depending on the location the student travels to, and they also fund foreign students who wish to study in the United States.
Program-based travel grant funding such as that from the Institute of International Public Policy fellowship is aimed at minorities who are interested in careers in international affairs and allows the grantees the chance to experience different cultures firsthand. Other grants are aimed specifically at those who wish to study in certain countries or regions. For example, the Bridging scholarship provided by the Association of Teachers in Japan is specifically intended to fund those who wish to travel to Japan and study academically.
