Costs and Scholarship Opportunities

The fee for the 2016 Transnational NGO Leadership Institute is $3,340 U.S. for the five-day program.  This fee includes the training fee ($2,500), six nights of accommodation, 6 breakfasts, lunch meals during the five days of the Institute, three dinner meals, and transportation to local venues.  Participants will be expected to arrange for payment of their travel costs, two evening meals and any personal expenses.  Participants who must extend their stay either before or after the Institute should contact Shreeya Neupane, Program Manager ( to make arrangements and the fees will be adjusted accordingly. 

It has proven increasingly difficult in recent years to obtain external funding for partial scholarships for applicants who cannot fully fund their own participation. We therefore do not expect to be able to source more than one to two partial scholarships. Any partial scholarships available by March 2016 will be awarded on a competitive basis, and will be applied towards the Leadership Institute tuition fees, or may partially ameliorate the burden of travel costs to participants who must travel long distances internationally.  In making award decisions, strong priority will be given to participants who are from transnational NGOs founded in the Global South.

The application deadline for consideration for these scholarships is March 15, 2016.  Applicants will be informed approximately two weeks thereafter regarding the award of these scholarships.  If you are interested in participating in the 2016 Institute and do not receive a scholarship but need funding support, please seek funding from your own organization’s donor pool instead.  The application deadline for all paying applicants is May 15, 2016. 

Billing, Payment and Cancellation Information 

If your application is accepted, you will receive a notice of acceptance by email.  This notification will include an invoice and payment information.  Payment for accepted applicants will be due by June 1, 2016.

Cancellation policy: cancellations are accepted without charge if written notification is received at least 30 days prior to the program’s starting date. Cancellations received after that time will be charged 25 percent of the total training fee.

Acceptance of all participants is based upon the extent of significant management and leadership experience, level of responsibility within the organization, motivation, and sector, size, geographical and gender diversity.
