Overview of Study Abroad Scholarships and Resources
The grants and scholarships that the Institute of International Education (IIE) administers for the U.S. Government and private sector sponsors help make study abroad more accessible for more students. IIE is working in partnership with U.S. colleges and universities to increase the number and diversity of American students who go abroad and to encourage study in places of growing strategic importance to the United States. In addition, IIE offers a single point of entry to access valuable study abroad information, including policy research, data on study abroad trends, news coverage of new developments, fact sheets for students, and dates and deadlines for major scholarship and fellowship programs. These resources and other scholarships and programs, including programs for faculty members, who play an important role in students’ study abroad decisions, can all be accessed through IIE’s study abroad portal at www.iie.org/students.
Study Abroad Capacity Research
This IIE policy research initiative addresses the issue of expanding American students’ international experience and the issue of capacity abroad to host them. Offers educators and policy-makers focused data and information on current capabilities and future capacity, as well as recommendations for action to maximize resources and pave the way for substantial study abroad growth.
