Raleigh International Bursary Fund - Expedition Programme for young people

Raleigh International is committed to ensuring that our Expedition programme is accessible to young people from a range of backgrounds. Our Bursary Fund has been established to help support young people who might otherwise find it difficult to fundraise the full cost of a 10-week Expedition costing £3,450 (not including flights).

If your household income is £44,000 or under you could be eligible for our Bursary Fund. Depending on household income, you will be asked to fundraise between £800 and £3,000.
