Partnerships


We partner to invest in the students least likely to study abroad. Whether through the Access Partner Program, corporate partnership, or individual donations, FEA relies on the generosity and leadership of people like you.

Are you a study abroad program provider, university, or scholarship provider? We invite you to partner and grow with FEA.

FEA Access Partners engage in the FEA mission through annual support towards co-branded or allocated scholarships and receive sponsorship recognition. Access Partners also serve as members of the Access Advisory Board (AAB), providing critical leadership-level feedback on the Access Partner Program. Membership is renewed annually, and begins at the date of pledge/gift.

The program has four goals:

  • Engage Access Partners in the FEA mission to provide scholarships and ongoing support to students who are underrepresented among the U.S. study abroad population.
  • Assist Access Partners in identifying high-need students of high potential they may struggle to identify through traditional recruitment.
  • Increase the number of scholarships FEA provides annually by hosting Access Partner allocated or co-branded scholarships.
  • Empower Access Partners to support high-performing, non-awarded students in the FEA pipeline with pre-determined incentives to further increase access.
