Scholarship Tickets

ICPR 2022: Interdisciplinary Conference on Psychedelic Research > Scholarship Tickets
We are offering scholarship tickets to those with limited means


Our Commitment

The OPEN Foundation is committed to diversity and accessibility. ICPR is a podium for a wide variety of ideas, disciplines, perspectives, localities, and individuals involved in the psychedelic field. We aim to support and amplify the voices of participants whose social or economic circumstances put them at a disadvantage in attending ICPR 2022.

To facilitate this, we are offering scholarship tickets to those with limited means to attend. Scholarships are intended for anyone (not just students) who wishes to attend but is genuinely not able to afford our standard pricing. 

Those who qualify a scholarship will receive a discounted ticket price of €99, and those eligible for partial aid may receive a different discount. 

Reimbursements for transportation and accommodations are very limited. We will assess the feasibility of this type of aid in the coming weeks and shall provide further information shortly. Nevertheless, if you also require this type of aid, please let us know in your application. 

Who is Eligible

We will dedicate scholarship tickets to a wide variety of people, paying particular attention to those: 

  • having demonstrable financial impediments to attending.
  • Coming from the Global South and Eastern/Southern Europe;
  • Who are BIPOC
  • Who identify as LGBTQ+
  • Who have participated in clinical trials involving psychedelics
  • Part of marginalised communities 
  • In retirement phase 

NOTE: Please note the above affiliations are not a checklist. Feel free to apply if you consider your circumstances deserve special attention. Do not take the answers to queries regarding your identity, credentials, and prior activity in the community as being set in stone. If many of the questions or boxes don’t relate to you, don’t be concerned.

In an effort to assess and enhance the diversity of the community we serve, we ask questions regarding racial, ethnic, gender, and other identities. The answers to these questions are entirely optional, and they represent just one of many variables taken into account.

How to Apply

To be eligible for a scholarship ticket, applicants are required to:

  1. Submit a completed application form before the deadline.
  2. Explain why and how attending the conference will benefit their work and community.
  3. Demonstrate a vested interest and commitment to the study or therapeutic application of psychedelics.

Please write a brief motivation statement (max. 200 words) about your situation, why you believe you deserve a scholarship ticket, your identification with any of the groups listed, and (if needed) your financial situation. In addition, do let us know about any relevant organisations or groups you are involved with or volunteer for. 

Video Application (Optional)

Alternatively, if you find you articulate your ideas better orally, upload a short video of yourself (max. 2 min) elaborating on the criteria mentioned above. Please upload this video to YouTube privately, and copy the link in the appropriate space in the form. 

NOTE: Proof of financial situation may be required as part of the selection process. 

Applications will be considered in two batches in June and July.

Deadlines for applying: June 30th (Batch 1) and July 31st (Batch 2).

NOTE: due to resource constraints, we cannot: 

  • Offer status updates
  • Approve all applications we receive
  • Provide individual feedback on any decisions
