Costs, scholarships, and payments


We are pleased to let you know that for all participants registering by 1 February 2016, the Leadership Institute offers an early-bird discount on the training fee. Below is our schedule of fees.

   Fees   Deadline for application
Early Bird Registration  $2250   15 February 2016
Regular Registration  $2500   30 April 2016
Late Registration  $2750   15 May 2016


The cost for the 2016 Transnational NGO Leadership Institute is approximately $3,340 U.S. for the five-day program.  This includes the training fee (as stated above), 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. 

Scholarship Opportunities 

It has proven increasingly difficult in recent years to obtain external funding for scholarships. Scholarships are therefore limited and modest, and will be awarded on a competitive basis. Scholarships 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 participants seeking scholarship is Tuesday, March 15.

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.   

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.  

Cancellation policy: Cancellations are accepted without charge if written notification is received at least 30 days prior to the program’s start date. Cancellations received after that time will be charged 25%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.

The general application deadline is May 15, 2016.
