Need-Based Study Abroad Financial Aid

After you submit an IES Abroad Aid Application, we will let you know your award amount within 5 business days, even if you haven’t been admitted to our program yet. This allows you to know what need-based aid you would receive from us as you make your decision to study with IES Abroad.

Priority is given to Pell Grant recipients. If you are receiving need-based aid now as part of an overall financial aid package at your home school, there is a chance that you could receive need-based aid from IES Abroad.

Semester/Year/J-Term (up to $5,000 for semester, $500 for J-Term)
For semester, academic year, and J-Term programs, applicants must attend a private school that is a member or associate member of the IES Abroad Consortium and the home school must have a policy of transferring at least 75% of institutional aid for study abroad. 

Summer (up to $1,000)
For summer programs, applicants must attend any school that is a member or associate member of the IES Abroad Consortium and the home school must have a policy of transferring at least 75% of institutional aid for study abroad.

Customized program students are not eligible for IES Abroad aid.
