Congratulations to our 2019 IES Abroad Ambassadors of the Year: Collin Thomas (IES Abroad Santiago, Spring 2017 | Hope College) and Samekh Harris Reed (IES Abroad Tokyo, Spring 2017 | University of Rochester).
Karen van Es and David Main never could have predicted what the spring of 1969 would hold when they chose to study abroad on the IES Abroad Madrid program. Read on to discover how their time in Spain affected their lives, and how their paths crossed again many years later, eventually leading to their marriage.
While studying abroad in Granada, Spain, Grant Carney (IES Abroad Granada, Spring 2014 | Kenyon College) immersed himself in the Spanish language and gained confidence in his speaking abilities. Read on to learn how this William E. and Mary M. Dwyer Endowed Scholarship recipient’s study abroad experience helped prepare him for the professional world.
We did it, folks! IES Abroad has once again been recognized for its academic and culturally immersive (and, of course, fun!) study abroad programs, being named the Overall Top Study Abroad Provider in the first-ever Go Overseas Community Choice Awards for Study Abroad.
We enjoy a bit of friendly competition every now and then, so when our 2018 Fall semester students participated in our first-ever virtual, live debate tournament between IES Abroad Centers, we were very excited!
