Attention Russian Candidates!

Written on June 21, 2011 by Joël McConnell in Global News on Financial Aid

This week a news item came in to me that claims a sizeable group of Russian nationals will be offered scholarships if they can obtain admissions to one of the world’s top 100 academic institutions.

See the full, Russian-language article “Государство оплатит учебу в зарубежных вузах при условии возвращения на родину” here:

If you are a Russian national and can confirm this (or have comments or information to the contrary) please comment here or email us at .

Up until now the Russian Government has not organized a formal scholarship program of this sort.


Chinese women are now leading the way, with regards to completing their master studies outside China, at the world’s top institutions (see the recent BusinessWeek article on the subject here) and many of these top candidates need financial assistance to access top master degree programs.  While IE has been active in China for many years, and we also have a representative office in Shanghai (contact: china @, we are actively supporting top candidates via Financial Aid as well.

To learn more about the awards, see here.  Keep in mind that to apply for these awards you must have previously been admitted to a qualifying master program.


Are you interested in the field of International Relations (IR) or Sustainability?

If you intend to study one of these subjects at the the master level then you should read on because IE is now working with Oxfam to provide scholarships of up to 50% of tuition fees to students of IE’s Master in International Relations (see here) and Master in Global and Environmental Change (see here).  There is also one additional scholarship available for a Bachelor Degree student of either the Bachelor of Biology (see here) or the Bachelor of Communication (see here).

The Collaboration Between IE and Intermón Oxfam

Given IE and Oxfam’s commitment to leading sustainability initiatives through international collaboration, Intermón Oxfam and IE have decided to launch a scholarship/grant program that makes obtaining a top education in the fields of IR and sustainability more accessible for future leaders in this sector.

In addition, Oxfam will be participating in the IE Social Responsibility Forum this coming November, and they will also be participating in the IE Career Fair in October 2011.  Both organizations are also collaborating in academic areas such as research, case studies and teaching.

Programs and Scholarships Available

The programs that are included and the related grants which are included in this program are:

1) Master in Intertional Relations – 2 fellowship grants of 30% of tuition fees (value of 8.700€ per award)
2) Master in Global and Environmental Change – 2 fellowship grants of 50% of tuition fees (value of 9.000€ per award)
3) Bachelor of Biology/Bachelor of Communication – 1 fellowship grant of 50% of tuition fees (value of 9.000€)

Each scholarship recipient will be provided the title of IE Fellow, and will complete their fellowship work at Oxfam conributing directly to several key projects they organizations currently has on the go, in the fields of IR,  sustainability and communications.  So, in addition to an award, scholarship recipients will gain professional experience in their fields of interest with a leading global organization.

Taking Action: Apply Now

Study abroad schoalrships for Danish nationals are available via Statens Uddannerlsesstøtte SU – the Danish Education Support Agency.

Students who wish to study abroad may apply for a scholarship for up to two years. The scholarship is intended to partly or wholly cover the tuition fees at certain study programmes in other countries.

There is a maximum limit to the study abroad scholarship. The amount at most corresponds to the sum received by a Danish educational institution for a corresponding study programme in Denmark. Should the tuition fees at the foreign educational institution be higher than the Danish scholarship, you must pay the remainder of the fee yourself. Also grants are available to cover living expenses.

IE is a recognized academic institution (SU berettiged) for master degree study, see the below link more additional information of SU support programs for Danish nationals.

If you’re admitted to the International MBA and are thinking of doing a Dual Degree, here is a very useful document for the International MBA + MLOG/ZLOG option: IE Business School+ MIT Dual Degree .

Key general tips on dual degrees and Financial Aid:

1) You must apply for Financial Aid before your start BOTH programs, and you are only considered for said applications if you can demonstrate definitive admissions to both programs before your start either program.

2) The assistance from IE Financial Aid, if provided, only applies to the International MBA.  For financial assistance for the additional program the student must apply directly to the partner institution. 

3) If a scholarship is awarded for the International MBA component of the Dual Degree the student will need to pay their place reservation within a set amount of days not only to maintain their spot in the program, but also to formally accept the scholarship.  Failure to do so will result in the lapsing of the IE Financial Aid offer.  This policy applies equally if students do the other degree component first, then continue on with the International MBA.

4) If a student is awarded a Dual Degree Scholarship for the International MBA component of the Dual Degree program, the student is not elegible for any other award offered by IE or collaborating scholarship institutions.  Students can still apply for a loan from Banca March or Caja Madrid however, again only for their study period in Madrid (International MBA part of Dual Degree).

5) Students who do the International MBA first, and who don’t decide to apply to the other institution until they have already started their program at IE, are NOT elegible for IE Financial Aid and cannot apply for the Dual Degree Scholarship.  Students must apply to the partner institution directly.
