The APIEA Financial Support

APIEA believes that international programs can broaden students’ perspectives by experiencing an intercultural study environment to adapt to the globalized world. To create opportunities and enable more students to study abroad in Asia-Pacific, APIEA offers various scholarship programs.


COVID-19 has had a devastating impact on all aspects of life. Study abroad programs have been canceled or postponed. Many international education organizations or study abroad-related departments at institutions faced restructuring and furloughs due to global disruptions. Billions of people have been affected severely. To support institutions, families, and students who are eager to Begin Again with their international studies in 2021-2023, APIEA offers $100,000 worth of scholarship to students participating in international programs, prioritizing destinations in the Asia Pacific.
