The Interdisciplinary Center Herzliya is a private, non-profit academic institution that does not receive any budget or subsidy from the state. Its operations are financed by tuition and donations.

IDC provides merit based and needs based scholarships. IDC Beyond also offers a number of scholarships for outstanding candidates or for candidates that cannot afford tuition.

In the first year of the program, IDC will offer scholarships of $10,000 US for outstanding candidates.

The faculty is working to find additional scholarships from a long line of organizations and companies that they work in partnership with and who support the program.
In addition, candidates can turn to external financing sources. Israeli students can apply for external financing on the National Union of Israeli Students websites here. International students can look for scholarships from a variety of online sources from their home country, or general sources, such as here and here.
