What is Transparency International School on Integrity?
Transparency International School on Integrity is an annual state-of-the-art anti-corruption and accountability training for future leaders. The School exposes its participants to the latest developments in the field of anti-corruption and accountability and offers real opportunities to try and implement their ideas in practice.
The upcoming School will be held on 26-30 June 2023.
After successful completion of the programme, 6 ECTS can be obtained.
Following a rigorous selection process, students will attend interactive sessions and learn from leading anti-corruption and accountability professionals.

The lectures, seminars, and trainings provide the School participants with a unique blend of international and local knowledge, while also challenging students to approach the subject from a new perspective and offer novel, previously untested solutions. Since 2010, Transparency School has welcomed more than 1600 youth leaders from more than 120 countries worldwide. Please find more information about our Alumni network here.

Is this School for you?
This one is easy. Transparency School is for senior students, graduates and young professionals eager to learn how to stand up against corruption and how to achieve greater transparency in their country.
The School usually hosts an equal share of participants from private and public sectors, NGOs and academia from all over the world. Such diversity in background and experience further strengthens our applied approach to anti-corruption and transparency. Therefore, participants not only learn about the causes of corruption but also spend a large part of their time learning practical ways in which societies can become more transparent and accountable.

Transparency Schoolers share their experience
“Transparency School was the event of the summer! There were some truly engaging speakers from around the world and after six days you leave the school feeling empowered. The programme was very versatile, there was a good balance between theoretical and practical knowledge and it gave a good chance for networking with other future leaders. Transparency School is an excellent example of how you can virtually inspire so many people.”
Merle Mändmets, Transparency Schooler 2021
”Alone as individuals, fighting corruption and the ills of society may be next to impossible. But together, we can make some impact. Thanks to Transparency International, Lithuania, we are now part of a network of people from different continents who are working to make a difference in their respective countries.”
“The best part of the school was the fact that we could share the experiences related to the topics that we discussed. Especially about investigative journalism and anti-corruption mechanism of different countries.”
Kankanamalage Chathurangie Janithrika Jayasundara
”TI Lithuanian Chapter created a great atmosphere during the summer school and managed a great performance under the unusual circumstances. All the online sessions were professionally prepared and supervised. In addition, the lectures were very interesting and the invited guests were very authentically and appropriately selected for the topics. I definitely recommend the TI for the future generations and wish you all the best, TI Lithuania!”
