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.
