University Scholarship Program to
Study in Spain

The Program

At International Studies Foundation, our goal is to foster enduring educational sustainability through a range of initiatives, thereby constructing pathways of opportunity for disadvantaged students.

We firmly uphold the belief that education stands as one of the fundamental pillars for the advancement of a cultured society, representing the most effective means to enact positive change in the lives of young individuals who lack essential resources and tools.

By granting access to diverse educational avenues, we have the power to profoundly influence the trajectories of young lives, ultimately empowering them to catalyze transformative change in the lives of countless others.

Education is one of the most important pillars for the development of a civilized society


The Scholarship Program bridges our educational initiatives with partners, aiming to integrate education, culture, values, internationalization, social awareness, and responsibility.

It offers youth an international experience, broadening their global perspective through interdisciplinary activities, leadership programs, and travel opportunities.


To offer students the opportunity to participate in an exchange program at the American university, CIS University in Madrid, through academic scholarships.
