ISS Alumni Fund

Offering financial support to prospective students
Students outside ISS building - group - 2019

Established by the International Institute of Social Studies in 2012, the ISS Alumni Fund provides financial support to talented prospective students so that we can enable them to study at ISS and develop into future-generation change agents. 

Why this fund?

Studying at ISS can have a major impact on a career and personal life. So many young people from all over the world, especially from countries in development, would like to have that experience. Some of them are lucky to get hold of funds but others are not. Through the fund we are able to help some of them and make their dream come true.
