The Center for Global Education strives to create for its students an intentionally diverse community of co-learners in which a variety of cultures and backgrounds is represented. Students, faculty, and staff help each other form responses to issues of oppression such as racism, sexism, homophobia, economic inequality, xenophobia, and classism in an environment where diversity expands the range of understanding. Towards this end, the Center offers scholarships for students who belong to historically disadvantaged groups. The following scholarships are available:
Scholarships for Students from Historically Underrepresented Groups
Heritage Scholarship Program
Robert B. Bailey Scholarship
The Robert B. Bailey Scholarship is intended to promote the participation in CIEE programs of individuals or members of groups that have traditionally been underrepresented in study abroad, especially ethnic minority students.
These awards are named in honor of Robert B. Bailey III, former member of CIEE’s Board of Directors and Professor of Sociology and Director of Study Abroad at the University of Wisconsin-River Falls.
IES Abroad is committed to fostering and supporting a diverse student body. Our Diversity Scholarships are one way to encourage and support students from a range of institutions and under-represented populations. Under-represented students include students from under-represented racial and ethnic groups, first generation to college students, students from low-income families and students with a history of overcoming adversity.
Diversity Scholarships include:
* IES Abroad Merit-Based Scholarship for Under-represented Students
* IES Abroad Merit-Based David Porter Diversity Scholarship (Up to $5,000!)
* IES Abroad Sydney-Macquarie University Diversity Scholarship
