Fulbright Scholar Program

IIE's Council for International Exchange of Scholars (CIES) has had the honor to administer the Scholar component of the Fulbright Program on behalf of the U.S. Department of State since its formation in 1947. On an annual basis, CIES recruits and sends nearly 1,400 U.S. faculty and professionals to 126 countries and brings and estimated 980 foreign faculty and professionals to the US to lecture and conduct research. To carry out its particular responsibilities, CIES maintains close contact with faculty, academic departments, institutions of higher education, and national education organizations, in addition to its own staff’s extensive international expertise.

The IIE Scholar Rescue Fund (IIE-SRF) formalizes an unwavering commitment to academic freedom that the IIE has demonstrated for over 90 years.  At the heart of the Fund is the idea that each scholar we help who continues his or her work in safety is a beacon of hope in our world.
 
IIE-SRF saves the lives, voices, and ideas of threatened scholars around the world by providing fellowships and safe academic environments. IIE-SRF achieves this by providing academic fellowships to professors, researchers, and public intellectuals who face threats in their home countries. These yearlong fellowships support visiting appointments at partnering higher education institutions anywhere in the world that allow the scholars to continue their work in safety. In most cases, IIE-SRF fellows are eligible to apply for a second year of fellowship support.

For more than 60 years, IIE has partnered with the U.S. Department of State, Fulbright Bi-national Commissions, and Fulbright country programs to administer the Fulbright Student Program, which annually benefits nearly 5,000 U.S. and international students. On behalf of the U.S. Government, IIE conducts publicity, recruitment, and selection activities for more than 2,050 new Fulbright U.S. students each year. For the over 3,300 foreign Fulbright students who enter the U.S. each year, the Institute provides placement, pre-academic and English language training, orientation, visa support, fiscal services, student supervision, and cultural and enrichment activities. IIE’s expert University Placement division is able to secure significant cost-sharing, including tuition fee waivers, from U.S. universities. Currently, IIE is assisting the U.S. Department of State in the administration of several key new program components: Revived Fulbright Student Programs in Afghanistan, providing U.S.-based degree and non-degree study for young professionals from these two countries; Expanded Fulbright Student Programs in Pakistan, Turkey, and Indonesia, in particular focusing on increasing the number of women applicants to study in U.S. graduate programs; Expanded English Teaching Assistants Programs (ETA), sending over 700 U.S. Fulbright Students to teach in 65 countries; and Expanded Foreign Language Teaching Assistants (FLTA) Program, bringing over 400 foreign graduates to U.S. colleges and universities to support instruction in their native language and foster knowledge of their home countries. This program includes the first students in over 25 years to come to the United States from Iran.
