We’re playing matchmaker! February is National Gift Match Month, and you can be a perfect match.
As a non-profit educational organization, IES Abroad depends on philanthropic support to provide study abroad scholarships that enable students with financial need to study and intern abroad in 35+ cities across the globe. We are committed to making our intern and study abroad programs accessible to all students, regardless of financial circumstances.
Currently, 55% of our students rely on IES Abroad scholarships and financial aid to make study abroad a reality. Study abroad scholarships are vital to creating access to study abroad programs for students with financial need—giving them the opportunity to develop intercultural competence, challenge their perspectives, and build professional skills to launch their careers.
That’s why we’re asking you to consider making a gift to support study abroad scholarships this February. Thousands of employers offer matching gift programs as a benefit to their employees. This means that you may be able to double the impact of your gift! All contributions to IES Abroad are tax-deductible, and in many cases, you may just need a receipt to have your gift matched.
“My IES Abroad Scholarship facilitated my personal, academic, and professional growth, and I am very lucky to have found people who believed enough in me to help me financially in order to achieve my goals… Thanks to your help, I was able to explore another part of the world.” – Dalia K. (Paris French Studies, Fall 2016)
