IIE’s Crisis Response

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.


The ongoing conflict in Israel and Gaza in response to the October 7 terrorist attack continues to impact many individuals in the region and beyond. IIE’s Emergency Student Fund is preparing to deploy rapid response grants in the weeks ahead to aid international students in the U.S. from Israel, Gaza, and the West Bank, who have been impacted by the war. These students are living with isolation and fear for their families and communities back home while they are left with no financial safety net to continue their studies. In the months ahead, IIE’s Crisis Response programs will support scholars and artists whose lives and futures are under threat and provide scholarships to refugee students who have been forcibly displaced.

Join our community of supporters to create a more just and peaceful world.
