We believe that the Shi’a Intensive Course should be affordable for all applicants. With the support of URD, we are providing several partial financial aids available for applicants who are interested in the course and eligible for attending the workshop and yet may not be able to attend the Shi’a Intensive Course without financial support.
A limited number of scholarships are available, up to a standard fee waiver of 30%. Scholarships are not applicable to the early registration or partner institution fee packages.
While we cannot guarantee to cover all applications, we are working on sponsorships and we would like to hear from you if the financial issue would be a big concern for your enrollment to the program. Please contact us for more information.


To secure your place at the Shi’a Intensive Course, you will be required to pay a deposit of €80 which includes a €30 non-refundable application fee.
You will then be required to pay the outstanding sum (total package fee minus your deposit amount) at your arrival in Iran by cash. Please note that we do not have the facilities to accept credit cards or money orders.
