In 2010 International People’s College initiated a programme called “IPC Global Citizen”. It was an attempt at promoting the idea of Danish Folk High Schools in general and International People’s College in particular, to a group of people who would never be able to attend the school without substantial financial support. In order to promote intercultural dialogue as a means to local, regional and ultimately global empowerment, the “IPC Global Citizen Scholarship” is granted to a highly qualified and motivated student once a year!
The “IPC Global Citizen Scholarship” is the only FULL SCHOLARSHIP available at International People’s College. The scholarship itself is made available by the Friends of IPC, and will cover the FULL TUITION FEE for an entire term (The scholarship does NOT include plane tickets, etc.)
Each year a call will be made for application from a specifically designated region.
Previous IPC Global Citizen Scholarships have been granted to:
Autumn Term 2010 Cleber Kemper, Brazil
Autumn Term 2011 Happy Harefa, Indonesia
Spring Term 2012 Hafiz Gbabillana, Ghana
