Join the Celebration! November 18–22, 2019
International Education Week (IEW) is an opportunity to celebrate the benefits of international education and exchange worldwide. IEW is a joint initiative of the U.S. Department of State and the U.S. Department of Education to promote programs that prepare Americans for a global environment and attract future leaders from abroad to study, learn, and exchange experiences in the United States.

As we talk about the #OpenDoorsReport today, remember that each of these 1.4 million students – from America and around the world – has a powerful story to tell. And each of them is now better prepared to make a more powerful, positive impact around the world. @IIEglobal pic.twitter.com/rw5czHEl1U— Marie Royce (@ECA_AS) November 18, 2019

MEET THE WINNERS OF 2019 IIE PHOTO CONTEST
We are pleased to announce the winners of the 2019 IIE Photo & Impact Story Contest! The IIE Communications team led this contest to collect real life stories of how the IIE programs that we manage make a difference in the lives of the more than 30,000 people who participate in our programs each year. These impact stories can serve as enhancement tools for IIE’s business proposals, renewals, philanthropy campaigns, and - most importantly – to inspire those of us who work to make these programs happen every day! With careful deliberation, the winner and runners up have been selected. Please meet our winners and view their winning submissions!
