Program Support

The ISTS Program Support department provides assistance and support to all program participants – including applicants, recommenders, managers, parents and nominators – via phone, live chat and e-mail during standard business hours (Monday – Friday, 7:00AM – 7:00PM and Saturday 9:00AM – 6:00PM Central). Agents are trained on each program we manage and we are proud to offer support in English and Spanish as a standard. Participants also have 24/7 access to a Self-Help Portal and a web-based contact form.

Credo: We do more than provide a service – we provide care! Hence, we will anticipate our customer’s needs and they will come to expect excellence from us. Our interactions will be timely, accurate, professional, consistent and courteous.

I lost my scholarship check and was worried I couldn’t get it back. Thanks to the great customer service and rapid response from an email, my problems were solved and they were willing to reissued my check!

I loved the quality of support I received. She listened to what I had to say, answered all of my questions and resolved my issue quickly. She even provided further information on what to expect after speaking with her. She was very knowledgeable about the information she provided me with. It was by far the best support I’ve received throughout this process.

I was impressed by how quickly my email was answered and most of all that I was treated on a individual basis and not as a number. Thank you again for all you do.
