Give to Study Abroad


Students who have studied abroad often tell us that it has been the most profound educational experience they have had as undergraduates.

It’s more important than ever to consider how a gift might assist Iowa State University’s efforts to provide these experiences to help prepare students to face the challenges of living in an increasingly interdependent world.

We invite you to consider making a donation to an existing fund or to sponsor a scholarship to honor a loved one or an important event in your life.

Gifts are made through the ISU Foundation, a non-profit educational corporation established to secure and manage private contributions that support the mission and aspirations of Iowa State University. When you arrive at this link, under the "gift designations” section, please select “I want to choose where my gift is designated.” A pop up window will appear, scroll down to the section called “Other areas of support” and in this section chose “Study Abroad Fund for Excellence.”
