Day 1 is treated as a separate event in partnership with the United States Institute of Peace (USIP), and in accordance with government rules, payment is not accepted for public events. Regarding days 2 and 3, we at the Alliance for Peacebuilding strive to keep registration fees as low as possible for our participants. We do not make a profit on the conference—fees only cover costs (and we try to keep those costs to a minimum, to cover basic expenses). We also offer scholarships and discounted rates for students of our member organizations. For more information about scholarships, visit our scholarship page, or contact rachelle@allianceforpeacebuilding.org.
