Course Fee for Peace Matters

The cost for the 10-day expedition is $1995 USD (this does not include incidentals and airfare). We recognize that $1995 represents a substantial cost and we are committed to ensuring that participation is not limited by a person’s economic status. Therefore, we offer a limited amount of partial scholarships to exceptional candidates.
