On November 29, 2016 the IES Abroad Community came together to celebrate #GivingTuesday—a global day dedicated to giving. We set out to inspire 100 gifts in 24 hours—100% for students with financial need to study and intern abroad next year, and we were overwhelmed by the response.
Thanks to your generosity and outreach, we exceeded our goal of 100 gifts, and our challenge goal of 150 gifts put forward by an anonymous donor. Together, more than 180 donors gave in support of IES Abroad scholarships—the highest number of gifts we have ever received in a single day!
Did you miss out on #GivingTuesday? You can still make a gift to support IES Abroad Scholarships by clicking on the button below:
Scholarships mean the world to our students. Last semester, nearly one-half of our students relied on IES Abroad scholarships and financial aid to make study abroad a reality. Watch our "Thank You" video to see how gifts from individuals like you make a difference in the lives our scholarship recipients. Thank you again for celebrating #GivingTuesday with us! By joining the movement, you’re making study abroad—and all the benefits of a global education—a reality for more students next year.
