AIFS is a Supporting Access Partner of FEA.

  • This means that in each academic year, since 2017, AIFS contributes a specific amount of funds to support both scholarship applicants on AIFS programs, and the daily operations of the organization itself.

  • Together we aim to increase the accessibility of AIFS Abroad study, internship, and customized faculty-led programs for underrepresented participants. We work together on marketing, outreach, and support for applicants and scholars.
