New Application Deadline: July 7, 2014 | Application and Program Details

If your institution is seeking to develop strategic institutional partnerships with higher education institutions in Colombia, please consider applying for IIE's International Academic Partnership Program. IIE’s Center for International Partnerships is pleased to announce the Colombia international partnership initiative for the 2014-2015 cycle. In order to accommodate the July 4th holiday week, IIE has extended the application deadline to July 7, 2014.

Following five 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 Colombia. Since 2009, IAPP has engaged over 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 exchanges, implemented strategic partnership plans, and expanded study abroad offerings. If you are interested in participating in this program, please contact Morgan Clark at mclark@iie.org or visit www.iie.org/iapp.
