LIVFund is a new organization that is offering a $500USD Scholarship to applicants over 18 for internship, study or volunteering abroad in Latin America. They have an open enrollment and award scholarships to 2 applicants per month. Applicants are automatically reconsidered each month throughout their placement. Prospective BICA volunteers may apply up to 6 months prior to their placement start date. Successful applicants are required to post 4 blogs of at least 500 words each during their sponsored placement in return for the scholarship.
The application process begins with an on-line form, in which the applicant provides basic information (contact information, brief description of desired program, sponsoring organization, etc.) and an "essay" which can be presented using video, photography, graphic design OR writing. If video, it must be available via a YouTube URL and limited to two  minutes. If photography or graphic design, it must be uploadable as PDF or JPG files. If written, it can be copied and pasted into the form (recommended) or uploaded as PDF or JPG files, and is limited to 300 words.
