Each year, IES Abroad sponsors one or more trips to familiarize Member and Associate Member coordinators, administrators, and faculty members with our study abroad programs. Study abroad coordinators have the opportunity to nominate themselves or their colleagues to participate in these trips. IES Abroad covers the majority of the associated costs, with participants making only a small financial contribution. Trips include the cost of travel to the host city, accommodations, most meals, group activities, and all local transportation.
