JOIN US ON NOVEMBER 15, 2018 for our annual scholar gala


The Fund for Education Abroad’s Annual Scholar Gala brings together our amazing alumni with the donors and communities who support their dreams of studying abroad.

Each year, the Fund for Education Abroad (FEA) invites our scholars from across the country to come to Washington, DC for the FEA Gala. There, scholars connect with our community of donors, thought leaders and partners, and share their life-changing study abroad experiences. The Gala aims to highlight the importance of diversity and access to international education. Each year, the funds raised go toward expanding access to study abroad; just last year, FEA raised over $80,000 towards scholarships for underrepresented students.

Now, more than ever, FEA believes that study abroad changes lives and society for the better. FEA envisions a future in which any U.S. student who dreams of studying abroad can realize that dream, and we thank all of you who have supported this mission since our founding in 2010.

The 2018 FEA Scholar Gala will be held at the Embassy of New Zealand in Washington, DC on November 15, 2018.

We invite you to sponsor the 2018 FEA Scholar Gala and Conference and lend your support to help increase access to life-changing study abroad experiences so that the next generation of Americans are globally-minded and globally-competitive.

At the Scholar Gala, join over 300 leaders in business, international education, government, and a cohort of FEA Scholars in the nation’s capital at one of the most important events of International Education Week (IEW). Sponsorship is further recognized at the same-day FEA Alumni Conference, which brings leadership and career development opportunities to 20 FEA Scholars from across the US, deepening FEA’s investment in the promise of these diverse, internationally educated Americans.

The Fund for Education Abroad (FEA) is the only independent, fully philanthropic provider of scholarships for American students to study abroad. FEA makes life-changing, international experiences accessible to all by supporting minority, community college, and first-generation college students before, during, and after they participate in education abroad programs. FEA’s
generous scholarships of up to $10,000 for an academic year abroad are “game-changing” for recipients, empowering them to take the leap and earn
college credit abroad.

Sponsorship of the 2018 Scholar Gala will increase the number of “gamechanging” scholarships FEA awards from 100 in 2018 to 150 or more in the coming application cycle.
