Empowering talent Our commitment to supporting talented individuals is evidenced by our work: fostering future leaders through scholarships and initiatives, and supporting the development of the IE Alumni Community


Access to education for outstanding talent

At IE we believe that each individual deserves the opportunity to achieve his or her full potential. We work to eliminate economic barriers to education and to offer resources to projects that add value to the academic community and to society as a whole.

Our efforts to empower talent focus on three main areas:

  • Scholarship programs: We offer financial support to talented students in every stage of their IE educational experience, from their undergraduate studies, to their masters, doctorates and research initiatives.
  • IE Foundation Fellows: We draw the best candidates to join the program from a large pool of talented and highly qualified aspirants worldwide to form a community of past and present scholarship recipients.
  • IE for Life: We support the success and ongoing talent development of the IE Alumni Community through initiatives and activities that foster a positive global impact.
