Greetings from the Institute of International Education (IIE)! On behalf of the Western Union Foundation, we are pleased to announce that we are now accepting applications for the Family Scholarship Program.

Scholarships may be used for college tuition, language acquisition classes, technical training and GED classes. Two family members must submit one application jointly for the program, and they can request up to $5,000 in scholarship funds per family. The Family Scholarship Program is helping immigrant/migrant fathers and sons, mothers and daughters, and brothers and sisters move up the economic development ladder through education.

Scholarship recipients are determined in a selection process independently managed by IIE. All scholarship awards will be paid directly to the educational providers, and no payments will be made directly to individuals.

  • All applicants for scholarships must be age 18 or older.
  • Both applicants are members of the same family.
  • Applicants must have been in the United States for seven years or less.
  • Both applicants must have been born outside of the United States.
  • Both applicants must be living in the United States currently.
  • The educational institutions for both of the family members must be in the United States.
  • The application must include educational institutions for both the primary and secondary award recipients (the two family members).
  • Scholarships may be used for tuition for college/university education, language acquisition classes, technical/skill training, and/or financial literacy.
  • Scholarships may not be used for advanced degrees (such as Masters, PhD).
  • Scholarships will be made only to accredited higher-education institutions and training/educational providers.
  • Western Union employees, Western Union Agents and dependents are not eligible to apply for these scholarships.

The scholarship deadline and award notification dates are:
