Find Your Passion
IEG is here to help – empower low SES students and refine innovative pedagogical approaches with partner universities.
Over the years, IEG has been dedicated to making top-notch educational resources more accessible to students all over the world in hopes that they can find their passion and pursue it. Concurrently, IEG Scholarship has been established to fill the college affordability gap for students of low socioeconomic status (SES).
However, according to a recent study from the U.S. Department of Education Office of Federal Student Aid (OFSA) in 2022, the student debt crisis has surged 144% over the past decade, forcing 43 million Americans to shoulder $1.75 trillion in loans. The average student loan debt balance is as high as $40,904.
At IEG, we strive to combat and lower the burden of student debt by building a student-centered learning community where a virtuous circle of knowledge sharing armed with stipends/scholarships could lead to a sustainable ecosystem. It echoes IEG’s vision – “changing the world through education”. We believe education is essential for the development of humanity and look forward to reaching this goal with like-minded people.

Who We Are
IEG Global Association (IEG) is founded in 2012. As a 501(c)(3) non-profit, we provide students with financial challenges to receive equal opportunities to participate in all of our Programs. At IEG, we strive to make a difference in this world via education.
We understand there are numerous so-called “short-term top university programs”, where in fact, they are mere “short-term vacation tours”. IEG works directly with top universities to develop challenging programs for students. We don’t believe grades should be the only key indicator on whether you could attend these programs, but more on whether you have the “passion to learn and excel”. Therefore, if you are someone who has a lot of passion to learn and excel, we welcome you to apply to one of our programs!
