Independent External Audit of the financial year 2021

The independent external auditors, appointed by the Board of Governors (BoG) from senior members of the national supreme audit or other suitable institutions of IACA Parties, formed a collegial body of three and conducted the audit in a hybrid format, with one auditor participating online and two auditors being present onsite at IACA premises in Laxenburg, from 25 to 27 April 2022. External auditors act in their personal capacity and enjoy functional and organizational independence in conducting the audit. Following the approval by the Board of Governors (BoG), the findings of the independent external audit will be presented and taken note of at the organization’s annual Assembly of Parties.


IACA offers a limited number of scholarships, generally for students from Least Developed Countries (LDCs) as defined by the United Nations, and for citizens from IACA State Parties, listed under the World Bank Classification of Countries by Income as the Lower-Middle- and Upper-Middle-Income Economies. These highly competitive scholarships are merit-based and they fully or partially cover the programme fee.

In 2021, IACA offered more than 126 scholarships. It offered 37 (IACSA 2021 online) and 24 (academic programmes) full and partial scholarships to students and participants of its academic programmes and open trainings courtesy of the Siemens Integrity Initiative. The highly qualified participants benefiting from these scholarships hailed the following countries: Afghanistan, Angola, Argentina, Austria, Azerbaijan, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Botswana, Brazil, Burkina Faso, China, DR Congo, El Salvador, Egypt, Ghana, Germany, Gambia, Honduras, India, Indonesia, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Liberia, Malawi, Malaysia, Mauritania, Mexico, Mozambique, Nigeria, Pakistan, Philippines, Romania, Russian Federation, Rwanda, Serbia, Sierra Leone, Sudan, Turkey, Uganda, United Kingdom, and Zambia

In addition, with the generous contribution from Austria, the IACA-UNODC Summer School provided 65 scholarships to young students and professionals from the following countries: Afghanistan, Angola, Bangladesh, Bhutan, Burkina Faso, Cambodia, Ethiopia, Lesotho, Malawi, Mozambique, Nepal, Nigeria, Sierra Leone, Somalia, South Sudan, Tanzania, Togo, Uganda, and Zambia.

Full and Partial Scholarships

To further support scholarship provision, IACA has continued to offer courtesy shares instead of courtesy gifts, where the value indicated on the shares is dedicated to IACA’s scholarship fund for empowering professionals. The money is used to subsidize the participation of nationals from less privileged parts of the world in IACA’s programmes.  Direct contributions to the scholarship fund are also possible.

Scholarships for LDCs

IACA strives to make its programmes more accessible financially, geographically, and linguistically.  The Academy supports and offers scholarships to students from LDCs and developing countries. Recently, IACA established two Global Programmes for LDCs: Empowering Foreign Service Officials, IO, and NGO staff of LDCs to Fight Corruption through Education and Training; and Empowering Women in LDCs through Education and Training.
