Money is always a concern for students who are considering studying abroad. This scholarship helped me ease my mind from the stress of money, and focus more on my studies. I was always told that I could study abroad only if I could find a way to fund my studies. This scholarship was, for me, the key to my dream.
Tina Walston, 2004-05 to Université Paul Valéry (Montpellier III), France

I had a very good experience studying abroad, so I want to help lead more people toward a similar experience. Also, my experience abroad was made much better by the local student mentors at my host university. I want to help provide that kind of service to international students at my university.
Nick Such, Spring 2006 to Hungary

I am a first-generation college student from a single-parent household. …Thanks to the Annette Kade Scholarship, I am the first person in my family to study abroad, to travel overseas, and to speak a foreign language fluently!
Ashley Maynor, 2002-2003 to
Université de Paul Valéry, France

This program has made me consider changing my plans for graduate school. I would possibly like to attend grad school in Korea, if I can afford it.

ISEP Scholarship Programs ($5,000)

Support ISEP and Sponsor a Scholar: ISEP will award a "top-up" scholarship, in your company's name, for every $5,000 you donate to ISEP. ISEP's primary placement model, reciprocal exchanges -- a system pioneered by ISEP and later adopted by many exchange programs -- reduces the financial barriers to study abroad. ISEP awards top-up scholarships to offset the additional expenses for travel, incidentals, and in some cases, lost work-study wages. Scholarship criteria: academic excellence, leadership potential and/or underserved student groups including racial/ethnic minorities, low-income, disabled, rural, and first generation college students.
