IIE Freeman Awards for Study in Asia

The Institute of International Education (IIE) is pleased to announce the relaunch of Freeman-ASIA, made possible by generous support from the Freeman Foundation.

Freeman-ASIA will fund approximately 400 students over the next two academic years, with awards ranging from $3,000 per student for summer study and $5,000 per semester, to a maximum of $7,000 for a full year abroad.  

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. 

Student application deadlines:

  • Summer 2016 programs - March 1, 2016
  • Fall/Academic Year 2016-2017 programs - April 1, 2016
