IE Foundation Fellows Program Empowering future generations of IE talent


The IE Foundation Fellows Program consists of an Honors program that brings together a selected group of past and present IE University students with extraordinary academic and extracurricular profiles and who have received one of our scholarships.

At IE Foundation we live by our deeply held commitment to the power of ‘Talent Taking Care of Talent’.

We believe that we all deserve the opportunity to achieve our full potential and 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. For this reason, we dedicate a significant part of the donations generously made by students, alumni, parents, corporate partners and other benefactors, to award scholarships to the most qualified and gifted candidates through a rigorous selection process.

We select our IE Foundation Fellows with the utmost care and rigor based on their outstanding academic, professional and personal achievements.

We draw the best candidates to join the program from a large pool of talented and highly qualified aspirants worldwide to form a group of past and present scholarship recipients. Of all the talented students who receive an IE Foundation scholarship every year, only a 12% are chosen to become members of this unique and exclusive community of IE Foundation Fellows that connects the future leaders and change-makers.


Life as an IE Foundation Fellow acts as a catalyst for becoming a successful change agent.
Our Fellows receive dedicated guidance by the directors of IE Foundation while enjoying access to unique networking opportunities through activities and events organized by IE Foundation and IE University.
In this way, they forge exclusive and lasting relationships with their peers, teachers, sponsors and partners.

"To be part of a program that draws students from different backgrounds and identities is particularly appealing to me. I had the opportunity to share my ideas, listen to others and challenge my unconscious biases that stem from my Middle Eastern background in order to become a better human. Having witnessed the toll that hardships could have on students, I am determined to pass on any aid I receive onto younger generations"
"As an IE Foundation Fellow, I believe in the power of giving back, and I hope in the future I will be able to impact the IE Community by creating my own business and offering scholarships, internships, projects and employment to IE students, because I believe in the essence of IE Foundation: Talent Taking Care of Talent"
"As an IE Foundation Fellow, I have nurtured my leadership skills significantly through exclusive hands-on networking or training events with great leaders in the field. I encourage you to strive for this scholarship since you will never regret investing time and efforts in this venture"
"Thanks to IE University’s multinational student body I have received a lot of insights and perspectives from IE Fellow Foundation students. An important personal take-away that I learned from the cases I studied and from interactions with peers and professors is that your drive can make you achieve goals"
"I couldn’t be more thankful for the opportunity to live a normal student life at a high-caliber institution, something that absolutely would not have been possible without this scholarship"
"Studying at IE is an investment in your life, and the Kistefos Scholarship provides you with the opportunity to do so!"
"The IE experience is unique because it is very challenging, but it makes one stronger, academically and professionally"
