Resource: Finding Study or Grant Programs through IIE

This week we have a quickie resource page that might be of interest to some readers. Those looking outside of typical study abroad databases may find it useful to explore the Institute for International Education (IIE) website’s program search page.

Rather than focusing on university-based programs geared towards language, the IIE database appears to provide information on broader organization- and company-funded programs across the globe.

Their interface targets not just students, but also a variety of professionals:

Although this may make it slightly difficult to hone in specifically on Japan, there are definitely options for funded programs here that I don’t typically find advertised in other locations, especially for things related to technology, politics, and international relations.

Scrolling down to the options that pop up, you’ll find links to the specific program as well as a brief description (when hovered over):

It’s a fairly straight-forward searching process, but may pull up an institution or organization you haven’t heard of with more grants and programs on their webpage than what’s advertised here. Happy clicking!
