If your institution is seeking to develop strategic institutional partnerships with higher education institutions in Brazil, please consider applying for IIE's International Academic Partnership Program. IIE’s Center for International Partnerships is pleased to announce the Brazil international partnership initiative for the 2013-2014 cycle.

Following four years of success, the International Academic Partnership Program (IAPP) will again guide a select a group of U.S. higher education institutions over the course of a year in strategic planning activities focused on implementing partnerships with counterparts in Brazil. Since 2009, IAPP has engaged nearly 100 U.S. higher education institutions in comprehensive, year-long programs aimed at increasing the number of partnerships between U.S. higher education institutions and their counterparts abroad. Past participants have increased faculty and staff exchanges, implemented strategic partnership plans, and expanded study abroad offerings within Brazil. If you are interested in participating in this program, please contact Morgan Clark at mclark@iie.org or visit www.iie.org/iapp.
