We’ve just launched a new award program for students bringing their spouses/partners and/or families with them to Madrid while they are completing full-time studies. The key details are below, see the Financial Aid web site for more infromation on how to apply...

The Family Support Grants are meant to help two types of students:

1) Admitted students who are coming to IE for full-time master study, and who will be bringing their spouse and/or family with them.
2) Spouses of current and admitted students who decide to also do a master program at IE, while their spouse is completing their program.

Admitted students bringing their family.  If you are an admitted student who will be bringing your family with you to Madrid while you are studying at IE on a full-time basis, then we may be able to help with the financial burden. While funds are limited, the IE Foundation has made a set amount of awards available to support students coming to Madrid for study, who will be bringing their spouse and/or children.

Spouses of current and admitted students. While you may not have children yet, every year many students bring their spouses to Madrid with them when studying a full-time master program. Given that spouses generally can’t work, the IE Foundation has also set aside funds to provide financial support for those spouses of current students who decide they too want to study a program at IE.

Requirements: Definitive Admission to an IE master program and official documentation showing you will be bringing your spouse and/or family with you. Additional documentation may be requested.

Value: From 20%-50% of tuition fees, applied directly to the pending tuition due for the student or spouse studying at IE.

Fundación Tripartita = empresa te apoya en tu formación + empresa tiene beneficio económico

Todas empresas disponen de un crédito de la Fundación Tripartita para facilitar la formación a sus empleados, o lo que se llama un Permiso Individual de Formación (PIF). Esta formación debe ser oficial: expedida por las administraciones educativas con validez en todo el territorio estatal y publicadas en el BOE (como nuestros Masters oficiales). Todo empleado tiene derecho a acogerse al PIF a no ser que por causas organizativas y/o de producción le sea denegado.

 La empresa dispone de un número limitado de horas (200 por alumno y año académico) y, en función del volumen de trabajadores que opten al PIF en la empresa, hasta 600 horas al año en total. La empresa se bonificará del coste salarial hora/trabajador que goce del permiso por el número de horas de la formación.  Tener en cuenta que la solicitud de bonificación siempre debe partir de la empresa, no del alumno.

 Ej.: Si el coste salarial de un trabajador es de 15€/hora, una empresa podría percibir una bonificación máxima de 3.000€ (15€*200h)
