Financial support is available for AWBC’s own placements and for joint placements with AUF.
AWBC’s Financial Package
AWBC will provide the following financial aid for volunteers:
Transportation, vaccinations, visa, health, travel, and liability insurance, and living expenses.
AWBC asks the host institution to provide accommodations. If it is not able to do so, AWBC will provide a stipend to defray this expense.
AWBC welcomes volunteers for projects making charitable donations equivalent to some of their expenses in return for a tax receipt. If you wish to consider this alternative, we would be happy to discuss it with you. Please contact Steven Davis at sdavis ( at ) awbc-usfc ( dot ) org

For AWBC/AUF, joint placements AWBC will arrange for the local institution to pay a stipend and to provide housing, if it is possible for it to do so.
