"Are PTO For Africans too?"


As an American, 95% of my audience is American too. The PTO Dashboard and my resources lean to an American audience, it's true.

But that doesn't mean PTO don't exist for Africans, too!

I made this resource to prove it. I've gathered all of the travel scholarships, travel grants, international fellowships, international study abroad opportunities, etc. and did further research to create this ultimate database of resources and application links for African nationals to apply to.

Because everyone deserves to seek risk, seize opportunity, and see the world πŸ’«


I, Gabby Beckford, am a Travel and Opportunity Expert, and founder of Packs Light.

I've been awardedΒ more than $200,000Β in scholarships, grants, funded cultural exchanges, etc., and have used them to travel to countries like the UAE πŸ‡¦πŸ‡ͺ, South Korea πŸ‡°πŸ‡·, Austria πŸ‡¦πŸ‡Ή, and Fiji πŸ‡«πŸ‡― and moreΒ completely free*.

PTOs have helped me:

  • have once-in-a-lifetime experiences
  • have an international education around the world
  • expand my network
  • improve my professional resume
  • start my career as a travel influencer
  • gain free flight miles and travel points
  • save hard-earned money

I want to help you do the same.
