Seminars and scholarships

The Arthur Troop Scholarship, as a legacy to the IPA’s founder, is a professional education and advanced training bursary, with the aim of aiding IPA members in their professional careers.

Every year, serving IPA members are invited to submit their application forms to their national section to be in with the chance of receiving a scholarship of up atto €2,500 to be used for a seminar or training option of their choosing. Many of the awardees opt to attend a seminar from the wide range on offer at the IPA’s Education Centre – IBZ Gimborn in Germany.

The application period for the 2021 awards runs from 1st November to 31st March 2020, with the successful awardees being announced at the IPA World Congress later that year.

All applications will now be processed through Google Forms in effect from 1st November 2019. You can apply to the ATS through the following link:
