The Institute for the International Education of Students, or IES Abroad, is a non-profit study abroad organization that administers study abroad programs for U.S. college-aged students.[2] Founded in 1950 as the Institute of European Studies, the organization has since been renamed to reflect additional offerings in Africa, Asia, Oceania, and Latin America. The organization now provides more than 125+ programs in 19 countries and 33 cities. Over 115,000 students have studied abroad on IES Abroad programs since its founding, with more than 5,700 students studying abroad each year.[1]

IES Abroad has an Academic Consortium composed of over 200 academic institutions.[3] It offers over $3 million in scholarships to help finance qualified students abroad.[4] In accordance with its mission and vision statement, IES Abroad highlights cultural immersion through the use of homestays and field trips to "[promote] the development of interculturally-competent leaders."[5] IES Abroad's services include pre-departure advising, visa assistance, alumni mentors, and safety plans at Centers abroad.[6] IES Abroad has a diversity initiative[2][7] and a green initiative.[8]

IES Abroad offered its first program in September 1950, when Paul Koutny, an Austrian student living in the U.S. on a Fulbright scholarship, brought American students to live and study in Vienna, Austria for a year.[9] Two of the students from the original program, newlyweds Clarence and Alberta Giese, returned after the program inspired to help other students study abroad. From their Chicago home, they worked with Koutny to recruit more students and send them abroad.[10]

William Louis Gaines, the son of a railroad worker who served in World War II and marched with Martin Luther King Jr., served as president of IES from 1974 until his 1992 retirement "through some of its most challenging years".[11]

IES Abroad developed a Model Assessment Practice [12] in 1999 as a framework for the design, development, and evaluation of programs of study abroad. This program formed the basis for the standards of the Forum on Education Abroad adopted by the field.[13] In 2010, IES Abroad was the first third-party provider to receive the Forum on Education Abroad's Category 2b Quality Improvement Designation, which involves independent reviewers using evaluation systems to make program improvements.
