About IFSA

The Institute for Study Abroad (IFSA) is a nonprofit organization founded in 1988. Their primary goal is to provide quality study abroad opportunities, plus academic and personal support services, for qualified North American undergraduates seeking to earn academic credit through study abroad. While the Institute for Study Abroad has an affiliation with Butler University for transcripts and other purposes, it is a separate organization.

IFSA is organized to assist students from the time they apply until after they return. Their staff in the U.S. prepare students for the academic and cultural changes that await them, and their offices around the world provide on-site support to help students make the most of their study abroad experiences.
