IIE deploys global, holistic crisis response to students, scholars, and artists where and when it’s needed most. Your support helps deploy emergency grants, secure long-term safe work placements, and provide life-changing scholarships.
Currently, we are mobilizing resources to deploy emergency grants to students from Libya, Morocco, Sudan, and Ukraine who are enrolled in U.S. higher education institutions. These grants will enable students facing financial distress to remain safely enrolled in their academic institutions.
In the days ahead, we will continue to provide long-term support to as many students, scholars, and artists as possible who are experiencing forced displacement, persecution, and financial instability due to crises in their home countries.
Immediately following the devastating earthquakes in the region, IIE launched its Türkiye and Syria Crisis Response to rapidly mobilize our unparalleled network of higher education partners to support students, scholars, and artists – today and in the months to come.
Less than one week after the fall of Afghanistan to the Taliban, IIE launched a coordinated, organization-wide Afghanistan Crisis Response, leveraging programs already in place to deploy immediate assistance for students, scholars, and artists.
IIE’s Artist Protection Fund provides fellowship grants to threatened artists from any field of practice, and places them at host institutions in safe countries where they can continue their work and plan for their futures.
