In order to increase accessibility of the certification program internationally and to resource-limited countries around the globe, the IFBA implements an international scholarship fee structure. The scholarship program is designed to empower those needing international credentials in biorisk management who live in resource-limited countries where economic circumstances impact their ability to pay the full certification and recertification fees. Applicants who currently reside and have responsibility for biorisk management in eligible countries will receive discounted certification fee pricing of $100.00USD (if a candidate’s application is rejected because of ineligibility, only $50.00USD of the fee will be returned), and, a non-refundable recertification fee pricing of $75.00USD for all PC recertifications.
