An email crossed our path yesterday from the Institute of International Education (IIE) regarding emergency funds available for Filipino students studying in the U.S. with urgent financial needs due to the impact of typhoon Haiyan. Unfortunately, the deadline to apply is tomorrow (wish we heard of this earlier so we could share it with you before now).
Anyway, we dug around a little more and realized that IIE (if you haven’t discovered it yourself) offers many funding opportunities for students interested in education… studying or conducting research. You should definitely take a look through their website and see if there is an award that you qualify for. Just keep in mind there are fast approaching deadlines so don’t put this on the “back burner” for another day.
Our advice of the day (if we haven’t said it enough), SEARCH FOR FELLOWSHIPS EARLY AND OFTEN.
