Is there an age limit?
No, there is not, even though the IYPW is targeting young professionals between 21 and 36 years.
Are there any scholarships or grants?
Yes, the IYPN grants up to three scholarships to applicants with less financial means. They will be granted a reduction of 50% on the participation fee and will be hosted by Austrian participants. Requirements: Please send your motivation letter and résumé to firstname.lastname@example.org by February 1st.
What is the dresscode at the ball?
Long dresses for the ladies and black tie for the gentlemen. However, you should be able to participate too, if you come with any very elegant dress or smoking.
Is it possible to attend the event one day only or without the ball?
Even though, it would be a pity if you missed out on the beautiful ball in one of Vienna’s most beautiful event locations, you are welcome to participate in the rest of the programme!
Please note that the participation in the ball is however an exception: Since it is one of our priorities to foster friendship among the participants in the best way possible, only one part of the event can be participated by guests who are not attending the whole program except for the ball.
Everybody, however, is cordially invited to join us for the Holy Mass and the “Cocktail at its best” party on Saturday, February 16th, in the Zentrum Johannes Paul II!

Former participants about the IYP Weekend
Being rather new to this kind of events I did not really know what to expect from the IYPN weekend. However, I did not imagine that I would meet so many amazing people, hear so many interesting stories and have as good a time as I had. It may be due to the fact that I arrived a bit later into the event, but I was really surprised at the relaxed atmosphere- it seemed as if we have all known each other for a time. The program was great as it was well balanced and varied. There is no doubt this event will grow and expand and I really look forward to seeing it happen and attending again! (Nina, Slovenia)
Thanks so much! I really enjoyed the time at the International Young Professionals weekend. It was very inspiring and enriching to meet people from all over the world, in different professions, all seeking excellence in their workplace and striving to live their Catholic faith. I hope to attend next year and bring some friends with me! (Nicholas, USA/Austria)
It was a pleasure to be part of IYPN 2018 ! I particularly appreciated the possibility to meet new people/friends from different backgrounds, but at the same time united through our faith. I enjoyed the good combination of leisure, sport, historical, networking & spiritual … I look forward to the new IYPN 19. (Denis, France/Austria)
