Grants to support members in financial hardship to take part in international events

The Scouts has two funds to help support members in a position of financial hardship to take part in international experiences via The Headquarters International Fund. The grant you apply for depends on the type of international experience and the individuals attending.

Financial hardship can be a difficult subject to discuss with young people, parents and leaders, but these conversations are important to support those who could benefit to provide specific evidence that shows why funding is needed. Find support on how to do this here.

Funding limits and conditions

Headquarters International Fund

These funds support adults and young people in positions of financial hardship to travel abroad and access activities that support the global programme.

The fund can support the following activities:

We will not fund individual experiences outside of Scouts.

We will not fund non-Scouts experiences and experiences as part of a UK Contingent (ie World Scout Jamboree, Moot and Roverway) these are instead funded through the UK Contingent Grants. Please visit this page for support for UK contingent events.

Adults and young people must meet at least one of the criteria for financial hardship. Similar to disclosure checks, we now ask for applicants to review evidence which will determine eligibility for these grants locally. For more information, click here.
