The Institute of International Education is currently preparing the 2017 edition of its annual directory Funding for United States Study: A Guide for International Students and Professionals, the print companion to IIE's online search engine www.fundingusstudy.org. With more than 800 grant and scholarship listings, Funding for United States Study is the most comprehensive directory on locating funding for study in the United States. It features detailed descriptions of grants, fellowships, and scholarships for undergraduate and graduate study, and doctoral and postdoctoral research in the United States. All basic listings are free of charge and provide an excellent opportunity to publicize your institution's programs.

How to Add or Update Scholarship Listings:
For institutions whose listings appeared in the previous year's directory, we ask that you verify and update your listings. Institutions whose listings did not appear in previous years' directories can add scholarships or grants that are available for international students.
We offer affordable opportunities to further promote your organization. For details, see www.fundingusstudy.org/Advertising.asp, or contact Jeff Bunkin at Naylor, LLC, at 352.333.3342 or via email at jbunkin@naylor.com.

IIE releases a new report "HER Initiative to Lead Change: The Power of Education" that presents the findings from a 2-year evaluation of the Higher Education Readiness (HER) pilot program in Ethiopia, an IIE Initiative. The HER pilot program provided secondary school scholarships to 100 female students from underserved populations in Ethiopia, with the ultimate goal of contributing to their success in secondary school and university enrollment. IIE’s Center for Academic Mobility Research and Impact measured the outcomes and impacts of the cohort of HER students against a comparison group of girls from the same schools who did not participate in HER. 

The HER Initiative to Lead Change evaluation report provides evidence of how a comprehensive pathway program like HER can increase high school graduation rates and matriculation to university, enhance female self-confidence and leadership abilities, and equip young women with skills necessary to succeed in life. The report also outlines how the HER program’s comprehensive approach to girls’ education ensured sustainability and change that went beyond the immediate student impacts, demonstrating the multiplier effect of the program on the girls’ schools and communities.
