Fulbright at IE Segovia Campus!

Written on February 29, 2012 by Joël McConnell in Global News on Financial Aid

This past Tuesday, 28th of February, a team of two from the Fulbright Commission’s Madrid office came to IE University’s Segovia campus to present to bachelor degree students the option of completing their master studies at a top US institution with a full grant.  This opportunity is only available to the most dedicated and academically strong candidates, but IE University graduates have the real possibility of competing for one of these awards.

Fulbright and IE have been collaborating for more than a decade in Spain, and every year IE receives 3 US Fulbright Scholars who come to IE for master-level studies.  Additionally, IE is now also receiving 1 Teaching Assistant (TA) per year through Fulbright as well.  Both organizations also collaborate through various other ways, including the Senior Specialist Program offered by Fulbright whereby top experts from the US come to IE to share their knowledge with students, staff and alumni.

“己身处的国家正值危机,这多少让人感到沮丧,更何况当这危机真实地影响到自己的生活,负面的情绪恐怕更为强烈。

Antonio的体会正是如此。已晋升中层管理人员的他为欧洲当地颇为著名的大型企业工作,为了以后的晋升作准备,Antonio计划申请欧洲的顶尖商学院进修MBA课程。“公司能提供助学经济补贴,不必担心高昂的学费。”Antonio原本认为这是个很好的机会。

然而变化也来得很快。先是自己的妻子失业,然后Antonio又收到公司的通知:公司取消了员工的助学经济补助。Antonio的财务状况一下子变得紧张,既要维系整个家庭的开销,又要承担高昂的学费,Antonio犹豫之后决定放弃申请MBA。….”
