As a donor, you directly impact the lives of students and scholars around the world.
We rely on contributions to fund IIE’s own programs which are vital to our mission. Here is how, as a donor, you will have direct impact on the lives of students and scholars in the United States and more than 180 countries:
- Give where it’s needed most. Help support IIE’s most urgent needs and core programs. Every gift helps IIE provide life-changing opportunities for students, scholars and professionals.
- The IIE Scholar Rescue Fund, which is saving the lives of leading academics under threat around the world, depends almost entirely on the generous support of donors. The need is rising and your contribution enables us to help more scholars.
- The IIE Emergency Student Fund helps international students continue their education when emergencies in their home countries, like natural disasters or war, jeopardize the completion of their studies. The need can outpace our financial abilities to address it, and your contribution can make an immediate difference.
- Generation Study Abroad stimulates greater and more diverse interest in international study. IIE travel awards provide practical financial support to students for travel costs - the most frequently cited obstacle to study abroad. We are making progress, but today only one in 10 students has the opportunity to study abroad.
- The IIE Fulbright Legacy Fund relies on philanthropic gifts to expand Fulbright outreach, to enable scholars to continue their work upon their return, and to enhance Fulbright as a life-long experience. Supporting this fund invests in the ability of tomorrow’s leaders to help solve the world’s most pressing problems.
- The IIE President’s Fund is one of our most effective avenues for sparking innovation in what we do. It allows us to be nimble, and to ask and act on the forward-thinking questions that promise better solutions for tomorrow. This fund relies entirely on the generosity of donors who want to help us incubate and grow great ideas.
Your support of IIE is one of the best investments you can make in a better future for all of us. Be part of the movement today.
