Which colleges and universities accept students from this program?
IIE surveys all colleges and universities nationwide each year to determine what financial aid opportunities are offered and what the eligibility requirements are for international undergraduates. We work with the full range of accredited post-secondary educational institutions. Schools do not have to be IIE member institutions and do not pay any fee to participate. IIE receives no commission to place students in any institution. ALL institutions are invited to review candidates through the program.
IIE evaluates each candidate application and researches appropriate programs and majors for each student. We work with the student, the advisor/center/foundation until the student; advisor/center/foundation and IIE are satisfied and agree with the list of schools for submission. Most students we work with have limited finances at their disposal and, therefore, each application is submitted to several US institutions to allow for more choice and opportunity.
In many cases IIE works with schools to combine more than one award, enabling candidates who require significant aid, to come to the United States for undergraduate study. Any expenses not covered by institutional awards are covered directly by the student’s personal funds, not IIE or another institutional sponsor. Depending on their financial situation and the availability of other support, some candidates are able to accept partial awards, while others need full support covering tuition, fees, room and board.
