As part of the IE Foundation’s dedication to supporting professional women throughout their career development process, the Foundation has partnered with the IEEE’s Women in Engineering (WIE) initiative to bring top women engineers from Europe, Middle East and Africa to Madrid for advanced studies in management. The collaboration includes various joint initiatives, including a scholarship program which will see 2 or more IEEE Women in Engineering members receive scholarships worth a combined total of 50.000€.

To qualify you must be an active Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) member and also a member of the Women in Engineering (WIE) initiative, reside in the IEEE’s Region 8 (Europe, Middle East and Africa), and have definitive admissions to an IE master program. Many of the participants of our program every year come from Engineering backgrounds, especially with regards to our Executive MBA program. However we encourage all interested and qualifying candidates to apply, regardless of program. See the IE Financial Aid web page for detailed application guidelines.

For more information from the IEEE Women in Engineering initiative, please email Dr. Pilar Molina at the University of Zaragoza (pimolina @ unizar.es) or IE Financial Aid (financialaid@ie.edu).

If you are a US student coming to IE, please note the following change in lending/credit assessment policy on the part of Sallie Mae:

“For credit checks completed from June 1st onward, they will only be valid for 120 days after the student submits the application. For the application to be successful, the loan needs to have the first disbursement scheduled within 120 days of the date of the students signature ( the date of our credit check).”

Please factor this in when applying for loans as if you apply more than 120 days before your program, than the application will in the end have to be cancelled and reapplied for closer to your program start date.

Please keep in mind as well that you may need to use other funds to make your place reservation well in advance of your start date, since Sallie Mae funds are never released to the institution more than 30 days before start date.  Place reservations paid by you the student guarantee your spot in a given program and intake. 

For more information contact the IE Offices in New York, Los Angeles or Miami (see: www.ie.edu/offices) or IE Financial Aid at financialaid@ie.edu.

Below are the answers to April’s most pressing and frequently asked questions.

Question 01: Should I send my documents by email or post?

Answer 01: By email scanning all necessary documents, please ensure they are legible.  Sending documentation this way reduces unnessary use of paper, and eliminates shipping costs for the applicant.

Question 02: Can I apply for scholarships that come up when I use the Search Engine without entering my program and country?

Answer 02: You should use the search tool on the Financial Aid web page to make sure you are applying for the right scholarships (if you apply for a scholarship that your program of study doesn’t qualify, you will automatically be denied the application).  If you would like to apply for a featured scholarship (one of the scholarships that is displayed when you first get to the scholarship web page), be sure your program qualifies.

Question 03: How many scholarships and fellowships can I apply for?

Answer 03: You can apply for up to a maximum of 3 scholarships and 1 fellowship (please keep in mind that generally fellowships only are available for full-time programs).

 Question 04: Which category covers Russia and India?

Answer 04: Russia is included in the Europe category, India in the Asia Pacific category.

Question 05: When will I know the decision regarding my financial aid application?

Answer 05: Typically within 2 to 4 weeks, as our Financial Aid processes support our Rolling Admissions process.

Question 06: Can I apply for scholarships and loans at the same time?

Answer 06: Scholarships and IE Fellow applications will only be considered once you have definitive admissions to a program at IE.  You can apply for a loan before actually starting your program, however definitive admissions is a prerequisite for loan awards, and once a loan is awarded, you must sign your loan agreement within 3 months of the approval date.  So, be sure you don’t have to travel to Madrid twice: apply so that you can sign when you arrive to Madrid to start your program.

Question 07: Is there a list of available Fellowship projects I can apply to directly?

Answer 07: No.  Currently we custom-match students approved for a fellowship within different departments at IE.  We’re working on making a list available, but this is not a change that is likely to take place before late 2009, early 2010.

Question 08: When can I apply for a loan?

Answer 08: Our recommendation is applying for a Caja Madrid loan once you have definitive admissions, and within 3-4 months before you actually start your program.  Please keep in mind that it is possible that your loan application will be denied, even though you have admissions to a program at IE, therefore it’s probably wise to see the Caja Madrid option as your back-up plan.

Question 09: What is the grace period for loans from Caja Madrid?  Do I have to make loan payments during the grace period/while I´m studying?

Answer 09: While students studying full-time may be granted up to 18 months in grace period, all students who take out a loan with Caja Madrid begin paying a loan from day 1: during the grace period only interest payments are made, and then at the end of the grace period both interest and principle payments begin.  Please note that part-time, blended format and executive programs all start paying both interest and principle from day 1 – a policy based on the fact that if you are studying with IE and working at the same time, then starting to pay back your loan right away is a good way to reduce your debt load as quickly as possible.

Question 10: Can you send me the loan contract so I can sign it in my home country, instead of having to come to Madrid to sign it?

Answer 10: No.  Loans must always be signed in front of a Notary here in Madrid, this is not a negotiable term of the IE – Caja Madrid loan program.
