Grants Available to Foreign Students During COVID-19

The Institute for International Education (IIE) has committed $1 million to aid international students affected by the COVID-19 pandemic and seeks nominations for students in need of that funding. As U.S. colleges and universities have shut down their campuses and asked students to return home for the duration of stay-at-home orders, many of the more than 1 million international students attending school in the U.S. face additional burdens.  “The necessary but abrupt campus closures are devastating for many international students,” wrote IIE President Allan E.

The global membership network is comprised of more than 7,000 professionals at 1,300 higher education institutions around the world, according to
