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.
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 International Intensive Course on Shi’a Studies, you will be required to present a copy of your flight.
You will then be required to pay the full amount of the course in cash at your arrival in Iran. Please note that we do not have the facilities to accept credit cards or money orders.
