To support involvement by a broad range of educators and conservation professionals nationally, Miami University offers significantly reduced tuition for AIP web-based classes.

*Prices are subject to change.  Allow extra for miscellaneous costs such as textbooks, readers, and travel to your local AIP Master Institution.

 

Offsetting Costs

With reduced fees as part of Miami University's support for this program, each AIP course is offered at a fraction of actual costs. Applicants to the program should check with their employer to see if professional development funds are available to further offset costs. Additional tips for grants can be found on the AIP Grant Tips page.

Scholarships

A limited number of small scholarship funds (in the range of $250-$500, varying by year) are available to current AIP students.  Scholarship descriptions and application information is distributed by email to all students in late spring of each year.
