Scholarship Program Overview

IPPA’s Student Scholarship Program helps students who would otherwise not be able to attend the Fifth World Congress on Positive Psychology take advantage of this unique career and learning opportunity. These scholarships help offset registration and/or travel costs for students who have been accepted to present a poster or presentation. Recipients receive a complimentary student registration for the World Congress.  The exact number of scholarships awarded in 2017 will be determined by the number of qualified applicants and the amount of funds raised in support of the scholarship program.

Eligibility Requirements

Applicants must be:

  • Currently enrolled full-time students in an accredited university / college
  • Accepted to present an oral or poster presentation at the Fifth World Congress and be planning to attend
  • Members of IPPA at the time of the Congress

Application Process

Students were asked to indicate their desire to be considered for a scholarship and provide proof of their student status when they submitted a proposal for consideration.  Applicants will be notified by March 31, 2017 of their award status.

Donate to IPPA’s Student Fund

IPPA is committed to nurturing the next generation of positive psychology scholars and practitioners. We anticipate many promising and motivated students will be accepted to present at the Fifth World Congress on Positive Psychology.  Many of these students are struggling to afford the cost of attendance, even though we offer significantly subsidized registration to enable student participation. By making a tax-deductible donation to the Student Fund, you will make it possible for more students to take advantage of this unique career and learning opportunity.

IPPA will offer a limited number of scholarships to help offset the cost of registration and travel for accepted presenters, in addition to offering subsidized registration feed to qualified students. The more donations we receive the more students we can help.

Please consider making a difference in the lives and future careers of these talented young scholars. You will find an option to donate during the registration process, or you can simply click below to make a donation. Thank you for your generosity and support!
