IFS Institute is pleased to offer scholarships to expand training affordability for those with economic challenges. We are also happy to offer scholarships for individuals from traditionally underrepresented populations and those who serve underrepresented populations, including people of the global majority, the LGBTQIA+ community, and people in marginalized or poverty-stricken communities.
IFS Institute invites you to apply for a scholarship in either or both of the following categories:
- Economic Need Scholarship: IFS Institute may provide a partial tuition scholarship based on the economic need of the applicant and considering their overall financial profile.
- Diversity and Inclusion Scholarship: IFS Institute may provide a partial tuition scholarship for people who identify as part of the global majority or the LGBTQIA+ community, or whose life’s work serves the global majority, the LGBTQIA+ community, or those in marginalized or poverty-stricken communities.
Those who have already submitted a training program application may submit a scholarship application.
IFS Institute uses economic need as the primary criterion for awarding scholarships, and we ask those who have sufficient financial means to forego these scholarship opportunities so that we can provide as much financial support as possible to those with the greatest need. Most scholarship awards are 10-40% of a training's tuition, and on occasion may be up to 50% scholarships are not available for travel costs). It is rare for those with household incomes exceeding $90,000/year to receive economic need scholarships.
