NEW YORK, May 28, 2024 – The Institute of International Education (IIE), the non-partisan world leader in international educational exchange, scholar rescue, and steward of prestigious programs such as the Fulbright Scholarships on behalf of the U.S. Department of State, extends congratulations to Chairman of the Board, Mark A. Angelson, whose prospective nomination as Ambassador Extraordinary and Plenipotentiary to the Kingdom of Norway was announced by the White House today.
