IES Abroad Increases Student Aid by $150,000 for 2010-2011

As part of its efforts to make studying abroad as affordable and accessible as possible for United States college and university students, IES Abroad has announced an additional $150,000 in financial aid funding for the 2010-2011 academic year.

The increase means that IES Abroad now offers up to $2,150,000 annually to help students study abroad. The financial aid will support need-based, merit-based, diversity, and legacy scholarships, as well as public university grants.

The 1,553 individual awards given by IES Abroad during the 2009-2010 academic year made IES Abroad one of the largest awarders of scholarships for overseas study, both in terms of total dollars and numbers of students assisted.

Dr. Mary Dwyer, IES Abroad CEO and President, says “This increase in funding means more students will have the opportunity to be more globally engaged and enjoy the life-long career, academic and personal growth benefits that come from learning and studying abroad."
