Tiered Pricing Model

Tiered Pricing Model Explained

At RISE Travel Institute, we do our best to foster a spirit of equity, inclusivity, justice, trust, and transparency in everything we do. For this reason, we’re announcing our new pricing model. 


To make sustainable travel education more accessible to everyone, we’ll offer tiered pricing for all our online programs and courses from 2022 onwards. We use the World Bank's country classifications by income level in 2021-2022 to set tuition discounts for residents in upper-middle income countries/economies (UMIC), lower-middle income countries/economies (LMIC) and low income countries/economies (LIC). To find out the latest classification of countries and economies by income level, download this table or go visit the World Bank for more information. We advise that you select the tuition option that corresponds to your country of residence.

We understand there are many variables that factor into your individual financial situation: you may live in a high-income country or economy but are unable to afford a full tuition. The opposite may also be true––you may live in a low income country or economy, but are able to afford a higher tuition for your courses. We trust you to choose the level of tuition that most accurately reflects your ability to pay. RISE is a non-profit organization, so please know that any surplus funds we raise are used to remove financial barriers for other travelers in our shared global community.


Thank you for considering a RISE Travel Institute educational program!


Acknowledgment: our tiered pricing model is inspired by our partner, Rooted Storytelling. More information can be found on their website.
