Why We Give
When Dean Balice (Vienna '70-'71) studied Economics under Dr. Adolf Nussbaumer in Vienna, he had no idea what direction his career might take. After earning a B.A. from Marietta College, he graduated magna cum laude with an M.A. in International Aff airs from Ohio University and moved to Chicago where he worked in commercial banking for French institutions, including Société Générale and Crédit Agricole for nearly three decades.
When Marianne Judy enrolled at Boston College, and Chad Brumley entered University of Tulsa, neither one had any idea that their lives would soon intersect in Freiburg, Germany. When Chad and Marianne were studying in Freiburg, the IES Abroad European Union program was just five years young.
Kathleen Kervin Diamond (Nantes 1966–67, Fall/Spring) recently created an endowed scholarship at IES Abroad with a gift and pledge of $50,000. This is the first endowed scholarship created by an alumna of IES Aboard and will provide need-based financial aid to students participating in an IES Abroad language intensive study abroad program.
After graduation, many young IES Abroad alumni continue their studies or travel abroad. Some return on Fulbrights or other scholarships or take jobs teaching English. Some return simply to travel. Returning to the place where their lives were forever redefined is something most young alumni hope to do.
