The 12 scholarships have been awarded to students who will be studying the following 4 programs at the following IE schools: IE Business School (International MBA, Master in International Management), IE School of Arts and Humanities (Master in International Relations) and IE School of Communication (Master in Corporate Communication).

Once scholarship recipients have graduated from their program, top academic performers can apply and be considered for internships at the OAS in Washington, D.C. as a way to complete their international experience.  So, in addition to getting additional European experience, top performers can also compete for an additional professional opportunity in the US, where they can apply what they learned during their master program at IE.

Impact in Scholarship Winners’ Home Countries

After their studies at IE, and their internships if the scholarship recipient successfully obtains an internship with the OAS in Washington, all grantees must return to their home countries to contribute to local development initiatives be they in the private and/or public sector.  This commitment to return completes the professional development and knowledge transfer process.
