Summaries

Summary Sentence: Study abroad scholarship for undergrads studying abroad in East Asia.

Full Summary: Freeman Awards for Study in Asia (Freeman-ASIA) provides scholarships for U.S. undergraduate students with demonstrated financial need to study abroad in East or Southeast Asia.

Freeman-ASIA (Freeman Awards for Study in Asia) is designed to support American undergraduates with demonstrated financial need who are planning to study overseas in East or Southeast Asia.  The program’s goal is to increase the number of Americans with first-hand exposure to and understanding of Asia and its peoples and cultures. 

Award recipients are required to share their experiences with their home campuses or communities to encourage study abroad by others and fulfill the program's goal of increasing understanding of Asia in the United States.

From 2001 to 2009, Freeman-ASIA supported over 4,000 U.S. undergraduates from more than 600 institutions with their study abroad plans in East and Southeast Asia. 

With generous funding from the Freeman Foundation, the Institute of International Education (IIE) will re-launch the Freeman-ASIA Program for two academic years, beginning in Summer 2011.

Interested students should check the website for details and contact their campus representative, Rebecca Miller, in the Office of International Education.
