Supporting promising individuals in financial need. 

Impact Scholarships

Impact Scholarships provide full tuition for graduate students who demonstrate promise for greatly impacting their communities. This is a competitive scholarship based on three criteria:

  • Ability to make an impact, based on your commitment to and influence within your community
  • The community you seek to serve faces hardships, experiences high needs and/or has historical disadvantages.
  • Demonstrated and expressed financial need to pursue your studies at the IIRP.

The IIRP does not offer student visas to the U.S. Our program is designed to allow students to continue their studies from anywhere in the world without disruption.

To apply for Impact Scholarships, you must first be accepted into our Master of Science program. After you are accepted, an essay is required to complete the application.

Begin your application by creating a Student Portal.

Discounted tuition with no hidden costs.

When you choose a graduate school, you don’t want any surprises when it comes to tuition and fees. Once you are admitted, we guarantee your tuition will not increase through the completion of your program, and you will receive an additional 8.35% discount.

Unlike most schools, we do not charge fees for course registration, graduation and transcripts. Transparent Tuition means there are no hidden costs.

All our graduate programs are fully accredited. We work with students who are eligible to receive tuition support from their employers.

  Full tuition Admitted students
Tuition (per course) $1,761 $1,614
Graduate Certificate (4 courses) $7,044 $6,456
Master of Science (10 courses) $17,610 $16,140
Master of Science with Thesis Option (10 courses plus Thesis seminar at a flat fee of $3,507)  $21,117 $19,647

A student enrolling in their first course at the IIRP will be afforded the benefit of discounted tuition of $1,614.00 for that three-credit course.

Individuals who are not seeking a degree or certificate will pay the non-discounted rate of $1,761.00 per three-credit course for second and subsequent courses.

  • Students who paid to take a professional development event and later register for the associated blended course will receive a credit for the event.
  • Admitted students are eligible for financial aid using our Interest-Free Payment Plan.

Fees

We have eliminated unnecessary application fees, annual student fees, graduation fees and transcript fees. Some students may complete their studies without ever paying a single fee. We do have three fees:

  • Late registration fee - $25.00
  • Course withdrawal fee - $50.00
  • Interest-Free Payment Plan start-up charge - $75.00

A zero-interest payment plan.

We offer financial aid to all students who are admitted to either the Master of Science degree or Graduate Certificate program in the form of an interest-free line of credit with low monthly payments and zero interest. While many graduate schools administer loan programs, we have simplified the process by offering the same affordable plan to all students.

Payment Plan Infographic ThesisThe final payment will be adjusted to resolve any discrepancies.

Benefits include:

  • Zero interest
  • Transparent Tuition
  • Fixed cost for budgeting
  • No maintenance fees
  • No penalty for prepayment

Admitted students enjoy the added benefit that registration fees for professional development events associated with blended courses, including conferences and symposia, are rolled into the total program cost.

There is a one-time $75 set-up charge.

If you begin by pursuing a Graduate Certificate, you can choose to continue for a Master of Science degree by simply extending the plan with the same monthly payment.
