Overview

Self-reported by organization

IIE's work to develop global leaders, internationalize higher education, and rescue scholars encourages peace, prosperity and scientific progress around the world.   IIE is expanding its work in Asia, Africa, Latin America and the Middle East, areas where international education and training programs promise great potential to benefit not just the fortunate but also the thousands of marginalized individuals whose talents will be needed in their countries' development.  IIE is also expanding its work in science and technology fields so that the best students—regardless of nationality and personal means—will have opportunities to study at leading institutions and drive innovation, research and entrepreneurship.

Program 1

Fulbright Student Program

For more than 60 years, IIE has partnered with the U.S. Department of State, Fulbright Bi-national Commissions, and Fulbright country programs to administer the Fulbright Student Program, which annually benefits nearly 5,000 U.S. and international students. On behalf of the U.S. Government, IIE conducts publicity, recruitment, and selection activities for more than 1,900 U.S. Fulbright students each year. For the over 2,200 foreign Fulbright students who enter the U.S. each year, the Institute provides placement, pre-academic and English language training, orientation, visa support, fiscal services, student supervision, and cultural and enrichment activities. IIE’s expert University Placement division is able to secure significant cost-sharing, including tuition fee waivers, from U.S. universities. Currently, IIE is assisting the U.S. Department of State in the administration of several key new program components:  Revived Fulbright Student Programs in Afghanistan, providing U.S.-based degree and non-degree study for young professionals from these two countries  Expanded Fulbright Student Programs in Pakistan, Turkey, and Indonesia, in particular focusing on increasing the number of women applicants to study in U.S. graduate programs;  Expanded English Teaching Assistants Programs (ETA), sending over 700 U.S. Fulbright Students to teach in 65 countries; and  Expanded Foreign Language Teaching Assistants (FLTA) Program, bringing over 420 foreign graduates to U.S. colleges and universities to support instruction in their native language and foster knowledge of their home countries. This program includes the first students in over 25 years to come to the United States from Iran.

Fulbright Scholar Program

IIE's Council for International Exchange of Scholars (CIES) has had the honor to administer the Scholar component of the Fulbright Program on behalf of the U.S. Department of State since its formation in 1947. On an annual basis, CIES recruits and sends nearly 1,200 U.S. faculty and professionals to 140 countries and brings 900 foreign faculty and professionals to the US to lecture and conduct research. To carry out its particular responsibilities, CIES maintains close contact with faculty, academic departments, institutions of higher education, and national education organizations, in addition to its own staff’s extensive international expertise.

Program 3

Scholar Rescue Fund (SRF)

The Scholar Rescue Fund formalizes an unwavering commitment to academic freedom that the IIE has demonstrated for over 90 years.  At the heart of the Fund is the idea that each scholar we help who continues his or her work in safety is a beacon of hope in our world.
 
The Scholar Rescue Fund provides fellowships and safe haven for established scholars whose lives and work are threatened in their home countries.  These fellowships provide professors, researchers and other senior academics with temporary refuge at universities and colleges around the world, enabling them to pursue their academic work and to continue to share their knowledge with students, colleagues, and the community at large.  During the fellowship, conditions in a scholar’s home country may improve, permitting safe return to help rebuild universities and societies ravaged by fear, conflict and repression.  If safe return is not possible, scholars can use the fellowship period to extend their term, in which they can continue their academic work and help their countries from afar.
