Make a Difference

Your generosity makes study abroad possible for students with financial need—giving them the opportunity to immerse themselves in new cultures, challenge their perspectives, and build skills to launch their careers. Join us in our mission to educate the next generation of global leaders by exploring the many ways to give below.

Your generous gift has the power to make study and internship abroad opportunities a reality for a student with financial need. Make a one-time gift or set up a monthly recurring donation.

Sponsor a Student

Study abroad changes lives. But for many students today, the extra expenses associated with a global education are insurmountable. You have the power to change that. Through our Sponsor a Student program, you can invest in a student with demonstrated financial need. From take-off to return—you’ll have the opportunity to follow your student’s journey abroad and see your gift in action.

Create a Scholarship

Did you know that 42% of students who dropped out of the IES Abroad study abroad or internship enrollment process reported doing so because of inadequate financial resources? The generosity of donors like you allows us increase scholarship funding for these students. By creating an endowed fund, you will see the impact of your gift today, and will provide financial aid to students in perpetuity. View all of our donor funded scholarships.

If you are interested in making a commitment to fund the study abroad dreams of students with an endowed gift, contact Jody Madler at [email protected] today!
