IE Foundation Fellows Program Empowering future generations of IE talent

ABOUT THE IE FOUNDATION FELLOWS PROGRAM

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 20% are chosen to become members of this unique and exclusive community of IE Foundation Fellows that connects the future leaders and change-makers.

THE VALUE OF BEING AN IE FOUNDATION FELLOW

Life as an IE Foundation Fellow acts as a catalyst for becoming a successful change agent.
Our Fellows enjoy 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.

All of this in addition to enjoying a wide variety of events, not only oriented towards networking but also of a cultural nature, with which my experience at IE has been significantly enriched. "

Receiving my scholarship offer was one of the happiest and most life-changing moments in my life, and I am extremely grateful for it. I am thoroughly enjoying my dual degree at IE University, and even during my studies, IE Foundation is still making a difference in my university experience. I am a part of the IE Foundation Fellows Program, and there I have had the chance to meet the other fellows, many of whom I have become very close to and would consider them a true family, which I can rely on, and whom I can grow together with."
"As an IE Foundation Fellow, I hold the opportunities for growth in the highest esteem. An exceptional aspect about being an IE Fellow that is worth mentioning for me is the exposure to a diverse community through events organized for IE fellows. These events help me to get involved with other Fellows and the wider IE community.
