IFS Training Scholarship Policy

IFS Institute is committed to providing scholarships to help make IFS trainings more affordable to qualified participants. Our organization has a long history of providing scholarships to participants in IFS Institute-organized trainings based on individual economic need, and we are also committed to broadening inclusion within the IFS community and among participants in IFS trainings.

Specifically, IFS Institute offers scholarships to expand training affordability for those with economic challenges, with additional support for individuals from traditionally underrepresented populations or individuals 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 an IFS training program scholarship on the basis of one or both of the following categories:

  • Economic Need Scholarships: IFS Institute considers scholarship applications based on economic need of the applicant, and this process considers their overall financial profile.
  • Diversity and Inclusion Scholarships: IFS Institute may provide a tuition reduction 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.

Most scholarship awards are 10-40% of a training’s tuition, and on occasion may be up to 60% (scholarships are not available for travel costs). While scholarships are available, IFS Institute continues to use economic need as the primary criterion for awarding scholarships, and we ask those who have sufficient financial means to forego the above scholarship opportunities so that we can provide as much financial support as possible to those in the greatest need.

Scholarships are available for North American, IFS Institute-organized training programs. These scholarships are not available for those enrolled in IFS Institute’s Organizational Training Programs.
