IIE's Heiskell Awards showcase the most innovative and successful models for internationalization of campuses, study abroad, and international partnership programs in practice today. Although past winners in the Partnership category did not necessarily focus on Vietnam, these programs serve as excellent models and may be adapted to your institution's needs.
