Do true international non profits normally pay for the airfare and lodging of their volunteers?

Do true, highly rated by charity watchdog groups, international non profits normally pay for the airfare and lodging of their volunteers?

I always thought it was a scam if the volunteer had to pay for their own airfare and lodging, but I would like to know if this is the normal way to do things, in order to maximize the amount of money that goes to the cause. I frequently see these volunteer opportunities online and a lot of students go on short volunteer trips like these.

Say, for example, a non profit that goes to 3rd world countries to open up a health clinic or build houses for a short amount of time. It is often hosted or in partnership with the student’s university and costs $2-3k to go for like a week or two.
