If your institution is seeking to develop strategic institutional partnerships with higher education institutions in Vietnam, consider applying for IIE's International Academic Partnership Program, administered by  IIE’s Center for International Partnerships in Higher Education www.iie.org/iapp

Following more than three years of success, the International Academic Partnership Program (IAPP) will engage a select group of U.S. colleges and universities in strategic planning activities focused on implementing partnerships with higher education institutions in Vietnam. Since 2009, IAPP has engaged more than 70 U.S. higher education institutions in comprehensive, yearlong programs aimed at increasing the number of focused, sustainable partnerships between U.S. higher education institutions and their counterparts abroad. Past participants have utilized the IAPP strategic planning process to initiate long-term partnerships that aim to increased faculty exchanges, diversify study abroad offerings, and stimulate joint research.
