IACA offers a limited number of full and partial scholarships to highly qualified candidates from Least Developed Countries (LDCs) as defined by the United Nations, as well as to candidates from some other countries, regions, and jurisdictions as determined by specific donors, in consultation with IACA. Currently, these additional countries, regions, and jurisdictions include the Caribbean area, Albania, Kosovo, Armenia, Georgia, Moldova, and the State of Palestine.

A full scholarship covers the MACS programme fee and travel and accommodation expenses. A programme fee waiver scholarship covers only the programme fee. Both types of scholarships are highly competitive and merit-based.

If you are an applicant from an LDC (or one of the above-mentioned countries, regions, or jurisdictions) and wish to compete for a MACS scholarship, please tick the appropriate box in the application form.

Individual Sponsorship

Companies, organizations, and public-sector entities often provide financial support or grant educational leave to their employees to continue their education. IACA will work with applicants who have submitted their application in preparing a sponsorship proposal for their employers or potential donors.
