ICPR Scholarship Programme
The OPEN Foundation is committed to diversity. ICPR is a podium for a wide variety of ideas, disciplines, perspectives, localities, and individuals involved in psychedelic research. We aim to support and amplify the voices of researchers whose social or economic circumstances put them at a disadvantage in attending ICPR 2022. To facilitate this, we offer scholarships to those who have 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.
The Open Foundation will assign scholarships by offering a discount on the ticket price. Those qualified for a full scholarship will receive a discounted ticket price of 99 euros, and those eligible for a partial aid may receive a different discount.
Reimbursements for transportation or accommodation 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 require this type of aid, please let us know in your application.
We will allot scholarships to a wide variety of people, paying particular attention to those:
- Coming from the Global South and Eastern/Southern Europe;
- Who are BIPOC
- Who identify as LGBTQ+
- Who has participated in clinical trials involving psychedelics
- Serve marginalized communities
Please note the previous affiliations are not a checklist. Feel free to apply if you consider your circumstances deserve special attention.
To be eligible for the scholarship, applicants are required to:
- Submit a completed application form before the deadline
- Explain why and how attending the conference will benefit their work and community
- Demonstrate a vested interest and commitment to the study or therapeutic application of psychedelics.
To apply, please write a brief motivation statement (max. 200 words) about your situation, why you believe you deserve aid, your identification with any of the groups listed, and (if needed) your financial situation. In addition, do let us know about any relevant organizations or groups you are involved with or volunteer for.
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.
Please note: should you be eligible for a scholarship based on your financial situation, a bank statement may be required as part of the selection process.
Applications will be considered in two batches in June and July. Deadlines for applying: June 23th and July 23th.
Please note we cannot:
- offer status updates;
- approve all applications we receive;
- provide individual feedback on any decisions.
