Financial AID

To further foster diversity within our programs, the IE Foundation awards tuition funding assistance to talented students in need of financial aid based on merit, distinctive competences and academic excellence. IE also has arrangements with leading banks to offer students attractive loan packages to finance tuition and living expenses.

Scholarships: IE’s Financial Aid Department currently offers a range of scholarships, loan agreements, and other financial aid options to help you fund your studies. We recommend that you apply for financing options as early as possible, as financial resources are limited and competition is intense.  For more information on financial aid options for this program, please visit our Financial Aid website.

Loans: IE has agreements with several banks that have devised plans specifically to accommodate your needs. These conditions are:

  • Loans available to cover up the tuition fees (except the Place Reservation fee).
  • Loan repayment period of up to 8 years.
  • Up to 18 months grace period on the principal.
  • Variable interest rate based on the current mortgage rate index.
  • The final decision on loan approval and any conditions it may be subject to, is made by the bank in question according to their own predetermined criteria.

Once accepted to an IE program, any student may send their loan application directly to IE. If you have any questions please contact: financialaid@ie.edu.

Corporate funding: Students who have arranged full or partial funding from an employer or third party must return the signed Corporate Financing Form filled out by their sponsor to the Admissions Department, from whom it is available.
