We firmly believe that financial limitations should not prevent a qualified student from participating in an IES Abroad program--this is why we commit more than $2 million each year to our financial and scholarship programs.

Please note that to be eligible for any IES Abroad aid, you must apply to and attend an IES Abroad program and your home school must be a Member or Associate Member of the IES Abroad Consortium.

Testimonial

“I cannot fully express my gratitude for the IES South America Scholarship. During a time of economic uncertainty, when my father lost his job and my college education became increasingly more burdensome, IES helped me go on a life-changing adventure.” ~Hope Nardini, IES Buenos Aires
