Financial Aid

Thanks to the generous support of students, alumni, partners, and benefactors, and to the sponsorship of a whole host of companies and organizations – all of them committed to international education focused on entrepreneurialism and a humanistic approach – the IE Foundation can make its renowned educational model available to those candidates that show a lot of potential but don’t have sufficient resources and can promote important, cutting-edge, international research, which is vital to teaching excellence and beneficial for the entire IE network and for society as a whole.

The IE Foundation’s three main activities are funding scholarships and support for the training of students, professors, and researchers; promoting research by funding research centers, professorships, and collaborations with businesses and institutions; and, finally, supporting academic and cultural work through publications, sponsorship of different cultural activities, and assistance with our library collections and bibliographic resources for research.

"Being granted the IE University Collaboration Award has helped me in many ways. Firstly, it gave me the incredible opportunity to continue pursuing my passion for business, always motivating me to perform my best. Additionally, I am a part of the admissions department and I am required to talk with families at events, and this has helped me to improve constantly and learn new skills."
"I was enticed by the idea of studying abroad for the entirety of my undergraduate career. With IE University, I have the opportunity to make this a reality and even have the option to do an exchange year as part of my program. I’m confident that the scholarship and experiences gained at IE University will give me an edge as a prospective professional."
"I have learned about large-scale event planning, and I have also become well-versed in different channels of communication—something that will come in handy upon graduation. Finally, the experience has shown me the importance of knowing how to properly present yourself, whether you’re representing your university, your company, or yourself."
"It’s helped me become a professional. I’ve been able to develop skills and competencies that will allow me to be ready for the ever-changing, globalized world we live in today. And for that, I will be forever thankful."
