This application is for member organizations of InterPride only. You must be a member of InterPride to receive a scholarship.
In an effort to streamline the application process for our International Delegates who need to obtain travel documents for attending the AGM, we have added an additional deadline. Organizations that apply for the first round (deadline of April 1st, 2018) and do not receive funding will be automatically considered to receive funding in the second round (deadline of July 1st, 2018), organizations will not need to apply twice.
