Arthur Troop Scholarship (ATS)

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 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.
