Funding: Freeman-ASIA Scholarships for Study Abroad

money [150-2]The Institute of International Education (IIE) is now accepting applications for the Freeman-ASIA spring and calendar year 2017 competition.

The deadline for student applications is October 20, 2016 (11:59pm EST), and the deadline for Adviser Certifications is October 27, 2016 (11:59pm EST.)

The Freeman-ASIA scholarships provide funding to undergraduate US citizens and permanent residents to support them as they study abroad in East and Southeast Asia.

The Freeman-ASIA relaunch is the latest of several steps IIE has taken to increase the number and diversity of Americans studying abroad and their study destinations. Studying in Asia before graduating can give students a competitive advantage in their professional careers, especially when collaborating with international peers. More than half of Freeman-ASIA alumni report being employed in a position related to Asian affairs or requiring knowledge of an Asian language. As more employers seek new hires with meaningful and substantive experience in Asia, it is critical that more Americans learn about and engage with Asian economies, political systems and cultures.
