Study Abroad with Scholarships from IES

https://www.iesabroad.org or http://www.iesabroad.org/study-abroad/scholarships

IES Abroad Programs is operated by the IES Consortium, an organization of over 200 colleges and universities dedicated to providing study-abroad programs for US students. In order to participate in the IES Study Abroad Programs, you must attend one of the IES Abroad Consortium member or associate institutions. However, their membership is impressive in quality and number of schools. Check to see if your school qualifies at http://www.iesabroad.org/study-abroad/advisors-faculty/consortium/member-schools.

Click on the “Scholarships” tab at the top of the page. This page lists scholarship options based on your needs and eligibility. These scholarships are specifically for students who wish to study abroad at some point in their academic career. A variety of scholarships is available, based on merit, financial need, and diversity, as well as various grants based on your major or the geographic area where you wish to travel. They also offer disability grants and public university grants. There are numerous links available to explore as well as a search window in the upper-right corner of the page header.

If you register with the site, you’ll be able to request more information and order catalogs about IES’s programs and apply for them online. (It should be noted that you may apply for multiple scholarships, but only one scholarship is awarded per student.) You’ll also receive email updates about new programs, application deadlines, and special offers. In addition, you’ll have access to the IES blog and IES News.

If you intend to study abroad and if your school is a member of the IES Study Abroad Consortium, this site, with its many program and scholarship resources, is one you’ll want to take a look at. Those are a couple of big if’s, however, and the scholarships here are only applicable to IES’s programs. This is a specialized site, so make sure that those if’s apply to you and that you’re interested in the relevant programs before you spend a lot of time here.

http://www.iefa.org

International Education Financial Aid (IEFA) is owned and operated by Envisage International Corporation, an online international education and cultural exchange marketing company, which also owns InternationalStudent.com. The IEFA search engine is specifically designed for students who want to pursue their education overseas. In addition to providing scholarships, this site also hosts a Student Blog, a Message Board pertaining to studying abroad, and links to additional resources.

To either Browse or do a Quick Search, click on the “Scholarships” tab at the top of the page and enter your area of study, the country you plan to study in, and what country you’re from (if you wish to do a Quick Search) or scholarship name (if you’d like to conduct a search by scholarship). The results are listed below the SEARCH button. The Browse option had 51 scholarships. Each scholarship name is a link that provides you with detailed information on the scholarship (you can also click on the blue “i” button in the fourth column to the far right of the scholarship name). However, in order to obtain the contact information needed to actually apply for the scholarship, you will need to register for an account and log in.

The registered search brought up 1006 scholarship listings, including many of those we saw (without the contact information) before registering. The individual listings detail the scholarship information and provide a link to the sponsoring organization’s website.

International Education Financial Aid seems to adequately fill a niche where few other sites venture. As well as scholarship information, other information for students yearning to study abroad is found on this site. Check out their blog—it looks particularly promising.
