Grants for students and participants from least developed countries and emerging markets:
In accordance with the inter-regional approach of IACA, students and participants from all over the world should have the opportunity to study and work at the Academy. In order to be able to provide training to those participants who would otherwise not be able to afford it and enable them to attend courses, grants and tuition fees will be provided.
The International Anti-Corruption Academy (IACA), an international organization based in Laxenburg, Austria, is a pioneering institution that aims to overcome current shortcomings in knowledge and practice in the field of anti-corruption and compliance. The organization intends to empower and enable professionals for the compliance challenges of tomorrow.
The Academy provides a new, holistic and collective approach to anti-corruption education and research, delivers and facilitates anti-corruption training courses for practitioners from all sectors of society, and provides technical support and assistance to a wide variety of stakeholders.
The IACA became an international organization on March 8, 2011. To date, it comprises a constituency of 59 Parties, including three international organizations. In addition, IACA seeks broad partnerships with private sector institutions, international and non-governmental organizations, as well as civil society.
