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 to 2009, Freeman-ASIA supported over 4,000 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) re-launched the Freeman-ASIA Program for two academic years, beginning Summer 2011.


Funding is not Available beyond Spring 2013
