Background Information

The Fraser Institute will provide bursaries to cover the costs of the program fee, travel, and accommodation (if applicable). Requesting one or more bursaries does not affect application status, and agreeing to pay for program costs does not guarantee acceptance into the program.

Please note: some organizational policies do not allow employees to accept bursaries for professional development. Please check with your organization’s policy before applying.

Program Fee

The Program fee is $600 and includes the cost of tuition, materials, and included meals.


The Fraser Institute will provide a bursary to cover the cost of accommodation for non-local participants for the Thursday and Friday nights of the program. The Fraser Institute will provide Saturday night accommodation only if necessary due to departing flight availability, which will be determined at the sole discretion of the Fraser Institute. Participants are considered to be “local” if they live within approximately 60 km of the program.


The Fraser Institute will provide a bursary to cover the cost of return economy travel to the program via plane, train, bus or ferry, or for mileage and parking for local participants. The Fraser Institute will not cover other travel expenses (i.e. taxis, airport parking, non-included meals, parking tickets etc.).
