Alumni Spotlight

Karen Taylor (IES Abroad Nantes 1976-77) developed a love of French from a young age, due to the encouragement of her mother. From studying French in school, to studying abroad, to falling in love, to raising her children—French has played a central role in Karen’s life. After practicing real estate and banking law, Karen switched gears to create a culturally immersive French language program for grade school children. Read on to discover what inspired Karen to embark on a second career in teaching. Read our interview.

Help Increase Access to Study Abroad

Our goal is simple: to make the life-changing benefits that come from studying and interning abroad accessible to as many students as possible. No one should be denied an abroad experience due to financial limitations. This is why we commit $5 million to our financial aid programs each year.

But we can't do this alone. With your gift today, join us in educating the next generation of global leaders. 100% of every donation goes directly to scholarships for students with financial need, helping them to pay for airfare, cultural excursions, academic tuition and more. Visit www.IESabroad.org/giving to make your gift today or mail your check to: IES Abroad, 33 W. Monroe, Suite 2300, Chicago, IL 60603. Thank you!
