The Mission of the Institute of International Education

  • Promoting closer educational relations between the people of the United States and those of other countries.

IIE is working to increase the number and diversity of American students who go abroad and to encourage study in places of growing strategic importance to the United States. To support this goal, IIE launched this portal which offers you a single point of entry to access valuable study abroad information, including news coverage, academic articles and research, fact sheets for your students, and dates and deadlines for major scholarship and fellowship programs.

Students: To find Study Abroad Programs, use the IIE PassPort Search Engine. IIE PassPort offers a comprehensive search for study abroad programs. You can search for these international education opportunities by country, language, subject, and many other criteria. After conducting a search, you will receive a list of study abroad programs that match your needs specifically as well as a list of other education abroad programs in which you may be interested.
