About the IBPA Affiliate Scholarship Program

IBPA’s Affiliate Scholarship Program offers members of affiliate associations interested in advancing their publishing program the chance to attend Publishing University free-of-charge. IBPA awards one complimentary ticket to Publishing University to each affiliate, each year. Applications for the complimentary ticket are submitted online here. After checking with each affiliate association to confirm membership, IBPA awards scholarships to the candidates who meet the established criteria.

The IBPA scholarship is intended for independent publishers and self-published authors who need assistance in growing their publishing program.
