The pandemic has stranded many international students in the U.S., and they are unable to meet basic living expenses. IIE is stepping forward in response to this unmet need.
Now more than ever
During this unprecedented time, IIE continues to work around the globe—as we have always done—to help students, researchers, educators, and others share knowledge and create a better future for us all.
IIE is committed to the safety and security of the people who participate in our programs. Our dedicated team has helped many students and scholars get home, and we are assisting international students who are stranded in the U.S. At the same time, we are working to aid our SRF scholars around the world.
IIE has faced many emergencies in our 101-year history, from wars to pandemics. Generous support from our donors helps us rise to each challenge, and then helps us ensure that educational exchange resumes and grows once the crisis is over. With your help, that is what we will do now and in the period ahead.
Where to Give
The IIE Scholar Rescue Fund is the only global program that arranges and funds fellowships for threatened and displaced scholars at higher education institutions worldwide. At the heart of IIE-SRF is the idea that each scholar we support is a beacon of hope in our world.
Unrestricted gifts offer the greatest flexibility and enable IIE to respond to crises or to opportunities as they arise.
By supporting IIE’s work, you help increase international education and improve access to education around the world. IIE aids refugee students, protects higher education in countries experiencing crises, and enables more Americans to study abroad.
Donate to a Fulbright Commission through the Fulbright Assistance Funds. IIE works with overseas Fulbright Commissions to administer these tax-deductible donations from Fulbright alumni and other supporters of the Fulbright program in the United States for the purpose of supporting the work of Fulbright Commissions and their programs of educational exchange. Donations are used to support scholarships for Fulbright students and scholars from the United States and the recipient country.
