Financial Aid for Delegations

For those with financial needs, we will offer scholarships to defray some delegation costs. The full cost of the delegation, including international airfare, is expected to be $3,600. 

We anticipate offering individual scholarships for $500 - $1800 off the cost for those with need. Preference will be granted to community leaders, activists, artists and others who display a strong commitment to activism in their own communities.  Submit an application or contact IFPB for more information.

Each delegates is expected to fund part of his/her trip, and pay an immediate $500 deposit to hold a spot on the airline. We have developed a fundraising packet to help prospective delegates raise money to cover their delegation expenses.
