IEFA International Education Financial Aid
The International Education Financial Aid website, IEFA.org, is the premier internet resource listing financial aid information for students who wish to study in a foreign country. Here, you will find the most comprehensive listing of grants, scholarships, loan programs and other information to assist students in their quest to study abroad.Our mission is to “promote international education worldwide through the development and publication of the most comprehensive database of International Education Financial Aid information available on the Internet”.
The frequently heard response to international students seeking information on financial aid has always been “there are very few resources available”. In comparison to financial aid available in a student’s home country, this may be true. However, there is an incredible number of resources of which many students and advisors are unaware. IEFA.org was developed to make this information available. Now when students ask; “how am I going to pay for studying in a foreign country?” – the new answer is “visit IEFA.org.”
IEFA.org was created in January 1998. Since that time, the site has developed a database of more than 1,500 programs of financial aid for international education. Some resources are specific to the student’s home country or field of study, while others are more general. Further, the site is continuously growing as new submissions are added and old ones are expanded. Keep looking if you don’t find something right away.
The site is owned and operated by Envisage International Corporation (EIC). Envisage International Corporation (EIC) is an online leader in international education and cultural exchange marketing, running a number of internationally recognized websites and providing unique products and services that meet the needs of students and organizations from all around the world. Founded in 1998, EIC roots were laid through this flagship site and InternationalStudent.com, and over the years these sites have grown into the network that you see today.
