This week at IES Abroad, we've paused to thank the people who make IES Abroad such an extraordinary global community. One of the most important people to thank is you.
You make us want to get up and go to work everyday. Students, partners, host families, friends, colleagues, and neighbors all around the globe are the ones who make our work so meaningful. Day in and day out, we get to make students' dreams come true through study abroad—what a gift.
Thank you for giving us the opportunity to do what we love.
This season, and always, we hope you are surrounded by good people, great conversation, and a drive to discover something new—whether that's a new meal, a new song, a new way of thinking, a new person, or a new place.
From our homes to yours, happy Thanksgiving from all of us at IES Abroad.
For the fifth year in a row, IES Abroad is participating in #GivingTuesday—a global day of giving. On November 27th, join us as we set out to increase access to study abroad by raising funds for IES Abroad Scholarships.
