You may be able to double the impact of your gift if your company has a matching gift program. Ask your human resources office to see if your employer matches gifts, and maximize the impact of your gift! In many cases you just need a gift receipt.

College financial aid typically doesn’t apply to summer programs, so many students bypass the opportunity to participate in an internship. Your gift will provide more need-based aid to students seeking to intern abroad.

Scholarship Programs

GCM Grosvenor

IES Abroad is excited to announce the GCM Grosvenor Study Abroad Scholarship, established by GCM Grosvenor. The GCM Grosvenor Study Abroad Scholarship provides need-based aid to graduates of Chicago Public Schools, creating access to transformative overseas experiences where students grow and thrive, both personally and professionally. GCM Grosvenor has committed to $100,000, making $25,000 available for scholarship awards, starting spring 2016 for the next four years.

Headquartered in Chicago, GCM Grosvenor is one of the world’s largest and most diversified independent alternative asset management firms. Fostering a community of diversity and inclusion is one of the firm's core values and a part of its overall business strategy. The range of personal experiences, values, and worldviews that arise from differences of culture and circumstance are a foundation for GCM Grosvenor’s continued success.

Give-Back Programs


IES Abroad has partnered with Amazon through AmazonSmile, an initiative in which Amazon donates 0.5% of your eligible AmazonSmile purchases back to IES Abroad whenever you shop on AmazonSmile.

AmazonSmile is the same Amazon you know. Same products, same prices, same services. Proceeds will go directly to benefitting students through our scholarship program.

To participate, simply click on this link. From that point on, the page for the Institute for the International Education of Students (IES Abroad) will come up each time you enter the site. For more information about the program, go to
