Scholarships for Intercultural Open University Foundation Learners

As a global organization serving an international student body, the Intercultural Open University Foundation (IOUF) is sensitive to how challenging it is for adults to return to school to further their education. Our learners are generally well established in their careers and often aged 40-plus. They usually have families to tend and charitable interests to promote. And they all contribute to making their communities, if not the whole world, a better place.
