Local nationals looking to join a GVI program can apply for a National Scholarship. These are open to any local nationals aged 18 years or above who have an interest in the training opportunities of the program and can explain how this opportunity will enrich their future pursuits. Most of these scholarships are used to fund 12-week internship programs.

We know that when GVI participants return home, they often wish they had booked for longer. Fortunately, we offer scholarships to those who’ve recently returned home. GVI alumni who book to any GVI location within six months of their last program will receive a 10% discount. After six months, all GVI alumni qualify for a lifetime discount of 5% to return to any GVI location.
