We understand that the cost to attend is a barrier to entry for some who may be interested in joining. For that reason, the IPS offers a series of full grants and half grants in specific cases. If you are interested in requesting this aid please fill out the general application form and send us an email to: pip@instituteforpostnaturalstudies.org explaining your situation. The aim of this scholarship offer is to address the specific systemic barriers that some attendees may face. We ask that you evaluate your level of need before requesting this support, as we will not be asking for any kind of proof of your financial situation. We will not share any information you provide here publicly, this is strictly for our team and anything submitted will remain confidential.
