Programme Areas

IE Foundation contributes to social development for a better tomorrow through three main pillars:

Talent development: Access to education for outstanding talent

At IE we believe that each individual deserves the opportunity to achieve his or her full potential. We work to eliminate economic barriers to education and to offer resources to projects that add value to the academic community and to society as a whole.

Our efforts to empower talent focus on three main areas:

  • Scholarship programs: We offer financial support to talented students in every stage of their IE educational experience, from their undergraduate studies, to their masters, doctorates and research initiatives.
  • IE Foundation Fellows: We draw the best candidates to join the program from a large pool of talented and highly qualified aspirants worldwide to form a community of past and present scholarship recipients.
  • IE for Life: We support the success and ongoing talent development of the IE Alumni Community through a set of resources designed to accompany them at every stage of their professional journey.

Collaborative knowledge generation: Finding solutions to the social, technological and economic issues we face today

In order to promote change and innovation, it is necessary to support cutting-edge research and initiatives that use new strategies in critical thinking. The Foundation’s think tanks, centers for excellence, observatories and chairs work to provide innovative solutions to the challenges faced by the business world and society as a whole.

Impact initiatives: Promoting IE values

The IE Foundation is more than a source of financial aid for students and research initiatives. We are committed to fomenting the success of all members of the community, promoting social change, and reinforcing our values of inclusion, innovation and an entrepreneurial spirit. In order to achieve this goal, we support a wide range of social action programs, cultural celebrations and entrepreneurial initiatives.
