In partnership with Education New Zealand, a Generation Study Abroad country partner, the U.S. – New Zealand Partnership Program seeks to increase academic collaboration between U.S. higher education institutions and New Zealand Institutes of Technology and Polytechnics (ITPs). ITPs are institutions of higher education that combine theoretical teaching with practical, hands-on experience through industry projects, work placements and internships. The program will include a study tour to New Zealand with visits to six ITPs and attendance at the New Zealand International Education Conference (NZIEC) 2016. The application is open to all accredited colleges and universities in the United States. 

This program is brought to you at the significantly reduced rate of $6,000 per institution. The fee includes all program and in country costs for two representatives from your institution.
IIE thanks the 1000 teachers who have joined the Generation Study Abroad campaign for their help in planting the seed of study abroad well before students reach college.

Teachers are powerful motivators when it comes to encouraging students to pursue any and all types of global study. Eric Northard, who teaches Geography and World History at Grand Rapids High School, is one example of the outstanding work that is being done to bring global awareness into the classroom. He is one of 50 teachers across the United States who received the IIE AIFS Foundation Generation Study Abroad Enrichment Grant for his contributions. Read more stories here

We encourage you to take time this week to thank a teacher who has been an inspiration in your life and has helped you get to where you are!

Colleges and universities are encouraged to complete the 2016 "Mapping Internationalization on U.S. Campuses" survey released by the American Council on Education. Conducted every five years, this survey assesses the current state of internationalization at American colleges and universities, analyzes progress and trends over time, and identifies future priorities. It is the only comprehensive source of date and analysis on internationalization in U.S. higher education, and includes two- and four-year, public and private, degree-granting institutions. Contact Robin Helms with questions or to find out if your institution has completed the survey.

The Benjamin A. Gilman International Scholarship Program is pleased to announce the Summer 2016 awards offered. We thank the ninety-six selection panelists from various colleges and universities across the nation who met at the IIE office in Houston, Texas to review over 3,400 applications for the summer application cycle. Approximately 950 outstanding students were selected to receive the scholarship to participate in credit-bearing study abroad programs and career-oriented internships in countries all around the world.  
The Gilman Program aims to diversify the kinds of students who study and intern abroad and the countries they go by supporting U.S. undergraduates who might otherwise not consider these unique and valuable opportunities due to financial constraints. Visit the website for more information.
