AWARDS AND SCHOLARSHIPS

Below you can explore the award and scholarship opportunities available for master's programs. The deadline for scholarships is the start date of the program unless otherwise specified. For all awards, no application is required. For all scholarships, financial need is taken into consideration, especially for talented candidates who demonstrate constraints in accessing alternative financing options, such as loans. Please note that complying with the minimum eligibility requirements does not guarantee a favorable resolution.

VALUES-BASED

These scholarships are oriented towards candidates that have demostrated their affinity for IE's four key pillars: Diversity, Entrepreneurships, Humanities, Technology & Innovation.

DIRECT AWARDS

These merit-based awards are granted automatically to candidates upon admission without needing to submit a scholarship application. All admissions applicants are automatically considered.

LOANS

IE University collaborates with several leading financial institutions to offer eligible master's students
the opportunity to finance their education with a loan. Many students choose to fund part or all of
their tuition fees with a loan, with some agreements allowing them to also cover living expenses.

It is important to first consider all your options, as there may be government and regional loans or
grants available to you in your home country.

Some of our partner institutions include:
  • UniCredit Logo
  • Sabadell Logo
  • Sallie Mae Logo
  • Santander Logo
  • Grad Right Logo
  • Bukas Logo

Plan durations differ by Master's program, so please contact your Admissions Advisor to see what payment plans options are available for you.

TUITION PAYMENT OPTIONS

In addition to scholarships and loans, we understand that the availability of payment plan options is important in making your program affordable. Our tuition payment plans allow you to break down your tuition balance into several consecutive uniform monthly payments, rather than paying all at once.

Our plans are interest-free, and do not require pre-approval or credit check. A one-time non-refundable administrative fee of 400€ is only charged when tuition payments are spread out over more than three consecutive months.

COMPANY SUPPORT

A number of students attend IE University with partial or full support from the organization they work for. Although this won’t be applicable to all students and is much more likely for students pursuing our part-time master’s degrees, it can be worth asking your employer about the possibility of supporting you to gain the advanced skills and training you will earn with a graduate degree from a leading university.

If you are employed by a company in Spain, your part-time master may be eligible for bonus training scheme (subsidized training) through the State Foundation for Training in Employment (FUNDAE). Speak to your Admissions Advisor to find out about this option.

Need help in making the case for company support towards your master’s at IE University? Contact your Admissions Advisor for putting together a business case.

AROUND 35% OF OUR STUDENTS RECEIVE SOME FORM OF FINANCIAL SUPPORT FROM THEIR EMPLOYER FOR PART-TIME MASTER'S PROGRAMS.

COST OF ATTENDANCE

Coming to Spain, or relocating to Madrid, to study your master's degree can carry other costs aside from the program tuition fees. Therefore, as you start planning for the cost of your studies at IE University and considering funding options to make it a reality, it is crucial to be aware of all tuition, fees and other costs such as living expenses, so you can estimate your student budget.
