"Educating Better People For a Better World."
International Studies Foundation (ISF) is a non-profit organization founded by CIS - The College for International Studies in Spain in 2012 and later in the USA in 2007 under section 501 c (3) of the IRS (Internal Revenue Service, Department of the Treasury of the United States of America).
Our mission is to share and spread the values of American higher education and to serve as a point of contact between universities, public and private education institutions, corporations and foundations operating within the realm of education in the US and in Spain so as to strengthen the bonds between both countries.
We work with young children via constructive activities that encourage teamwork and improve overall health by promoting healthy habits and reinforcing self-esteem.
We aim for long-term educational sustainability by offering academically successful students the possibility of studying at CIS – The College for International Studies on a scholarship.
We work at the best academic, corporate, institutional and diplomatic level. We promote initiatives, projects, activities, conversations and exchanges to benefit society through University education.
We build and maintain relationships with other universities and colleges, public and private institutions, and with noteworthy individuals in all professional settings in order to foster a cultural exchange and to meet the goals of the Foundation.
