Freeman-ASIA Award for Summer Study

Justin Vo ‘17 receives the Freeman-ASIA Award for Summer Study

Freeman-ASIA is designed to support U.S.-based undergraduates with demonstrated financial need who are planning to study overseas in East or Southeast Asia. The program’s goal is to increase the number of U.S. citizens and permanent residents with first-hand exposure to and understanding of Asia and its peoples and cultures.

Award recipients are required to share their experiences with their home campuses or communities to encourage study abroad by others and fulfill the program's goal of increasing understanding of Asia in the United States.

From 2001 through the 2013 academic year, Freeman-ASIA supported 4,500 U.S. undergraduates from more than 600 institutions with their study abroad plans in East and Southeast Asia.

With generous funding from the Freeman Foundation, the Institute of International Education (IIE) is happy to relaunch Freeman-ASIA in 2016.
