IEC Scholarships

Visctoria Reypin, Abe Nomura Scholarship RecipientEvery year IEC offers a variety of scholarship types to organizations and individuals around the world as a means to support students in their goal to learn English.  IEC also receives a number of international students who are scholarship recipients from their home country government and related organizations. Lastly, two times a year, IEC gives a current student a $500 scholarship award to honor the memory of two students who passed away while studying at IEC.

IEC is proud to be able to provide support to our international partners and students and is equally honored to receive students on a scholarship from their government. Please contact IEC if you would like more information on scholarship opportunities.

Marina, ICC Scholarship RecipientMarina Tani – ICC Japan Scholarship
"I came to IEC through an agency in Japan – ICC. They gave me $1000 to help with tuition which was great! I ended up choosing IEC because my brother went to school here and he said I would meet a lot of friends from all over the world and be exposed to many new cultures. After IEC, I transferred to DVC. My goal is to get into UC Davis to study Zoology or Biology. I still have about a year and a half more at DVC. I really loved IEC and miss it a lot, especially the teachers who are really good at taking care of the students. My advice to students is to stay active in class and in activities. It is the best way to make friends and improve your English. I also recommend volunteering to meet American friends and improve your resume for college and future jobs. I’m very happy I came to IEC and thank ICC for the scholarship!”
