Nobis Project is committed to working hard to make participation in Nobis World programs as affordable as possible. There are a limited number of scholarships available for teachers. Because aid is limited, please carefully consider all the resources available that might help fund your trip before deciding how much aid to request. You can apply for a scholarship by completing the appropriate sections of the application form.

Additionally, we encourage teachers to explore alternative funding sources and recommend you

  • Speak with your school’s principal and/or professional development coordinator. Inquire about available professional development funds or grants that your school district or state offers.
  • Contact your school's PTA about available professional development funding support.
  • Contact professional or community organizations of which you are a member.
  • Contact your local Rotary Club, their main objective is “service — in the community, in the workplace, and around the globe” of which the Nobis World programs meet all three.

There are a tremendous amount of small grants available for educators. With a little bit of time and energy you maybe able to have a part to your whole trip funded. Nobis Project has prepared these Grant Writing Tips for teachers to use. And we have complied this list of grants we have come across that could be used towards a Nobis World program. Please let us know if you come across any other applicable grant opportunities so that we may spread the word for teachers in the future!
